Achintya Biswas Makes a Short Survey of Bengali Dalit Literature

Achintya Biswas, Professor of Bengali in Jadavpur University, and one of the founders of the Bangla Dalit Sahitya Sanstha, gives a brief overview of Dalit literature in Bengali. He has also been editorially involved with the influential magazine Chaturtho Duniya, and explains how the magazine reshaped the literary history of Bengali, especially with their revaluation of the writer Advaita Mallabarman. Since he also teaches at Jadavpur University, Biswas speaks of the space for discussions centred around caste in Jadavpur University.
