Untouchability in the 21st Century – also called caste discrimination or “discrimination based on work and descent” – affects at least 250 million people living across Asia, Africa and the Middle East, with diaspora communities in Europe and the Americas. This talk explores the historical making of this little-known transnational world of untouchable groups, focusing on the experiences of Korea’s Baekjeong.

Location: Faculty Conference Room (1D02), First Floor Georgetown University in Qatar
