The following were the activities that took place related to the UGC-UKIERI project when Professor Sumanagla Damordaran visited the University of Edinburgh between 20th and 23rd June 2019.

1. She gave a talk in the CSAS Seminar Series of the Centre for South Asian Studies titled Labour’s Powers and Questions of Freedom – Situating Informality and Precarity in a Historical Context.

It was based on ongoing work that she is doing with a group of colleagues from Freiburg, Cape Town and Cyprus on the idea of ‘Deviance’ and its relationship to social change. Taking a cue from the Durkheimian idea of Deviance and inverting it, the team has developed a theoretical framework and published a book in 2014. What she presented is a section of their new book that is being completed, where she has looked at how the capitalist wage contract has been historically conditioned by local practices of discrimination and how this links up with conditions of labour and employment in the contemporary world, both in developed as well as developing countries.

2. She had two meetings with Radhika Govinda and her two PhD students Kamya and Cat to discuss the plans and possible content for a webcomic based on project roundtable conversations in both Delhi and Edinburgh and panel discussion transcripts.

3. She had a meeting with Fiona Mackay and Radhika to discuss plans for what can be done in the project when they visit later in the year.
