"The Battle for Sabarimala:
Religion, Law, and Gender in Contemporary India"

(forthcoming, Oxford University Press).


Date: Tuesday, September 19, 2023

Time: 4:15-5:45 p.m. EST

Location: Hunter Atrium on the third floor of Gambrell Hall (1301 Clifton Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30322) or Zoom (link provided to registered participants)




The panel will include faculty from several Emory departments:

  • Harshita Kamath (Middle Eastern and South Asian Studies),
  • Sameena Mulla (Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies),
  • Don Seeman (Religion)

Das Acevedo’s India scholarship is heavily focused on personhood, religion, and the contours of democratic governance. Since 2007, she has spent considerable time studying the governance of Hindu temples as a window into secular politics and citizen-state relations.
