Animal Sacrifice on Trial. Moral Reforms and Religious Freedom in India

Daniella Berti, CNRS, Paris, France
4:30pm, Thursday, December 3. Room 202, Luce Hall, 34 Hillhouse.

Dr Daniella Berti is a social anthropologist and researcher at CNRS, Paris, France, and has worked extensively on local communities in India over the last 25 years. The extent of Dr. Berti’s research interests is truly breathtaking--over the course of her career she has explored topics as varied as legal anthropology, the anthropology of Hindutva and the intersection between ritual, territoriality and local politics. Her current research focuses on developing an understanding of the legal and social aspects of religious reform in India.

Dr. Berti has published across these fields, and is mostly recently the co-editor of a volume titled “Regimes of Legalities: Ethnography of Criminal Cases in South Asia”. At Yale, she will be delivering a talk titled “Animal Sacrifice on Trial: Moral Reforms and Religious Freedom in India’.
