Inter-generational perspectives on caste: A Hindu Punjabi study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Caste in its manifold aspects has been a feature of studies about the Indian subcontinent. In the last few decades scholarship has begun to examine the impact that caste has had on culture in the diasporas. This article is a study of inter-generational change in attitudes to caste within a group of Hindu Punjabis in the Greater Manchester area. The rationale is to explore whether ideas about caste are generally consistent within families or whether there are marked differences in attitudes between the generations. This is one way of establishing whether there has been a decline in the significance of caste in Britain.
