''Locating Pastoral women: Understanding work, Re-imagining futures''

August, 2022

Pastoralists have been largely excluded from the discourses of policy making and development because of their non sedantarized ways of living. Furthermore, a pastoral woman who is in constant interaction with the forests, animals and land, as part of their profession and life world fails to find a mention in literature and policies. The kind of labour they perform, their interaction with animals and ecology and being in constant movement opens up  ways to understand the role of women in the pastoral economy. This further allows us to add to the complexity of discourse on women and work and look at it from the perspective of non sedantarized populations. Therefore, ISST decided to undertake the research titled Understanding Pastoral Women's work: an exploratory study in April 2021. The research was placed in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh where we were engaging largely with Gaddi and Hindu Gujjar pastoral communities.
Through this seminar, we take the opportunity to discuss the findings of this research and create a space to share and reflect on multiple questions that this research opens up for us such as but not limited to pastoral women and their work, care work which transcends the human and changing meanings of work in pastoral communities. 
Date: 26th August 2022
Time: 2:00 p.m. onwards
Venue: Magnolia hall, India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi - 110003
