#Srinivas considered that #anthropology was a #colonial tool of governance that used used to 'divide and rule'. His views on the #census as a political tool anticipated the views of scholars such as #Cohn and #Dirks
However, for #Srinivas this was a doubled edged sword. Indian nationalists used the categories politicized by colonial rulers to 'discover' India's past and to create myths in the struggle for #independence

USE THIS #Thread #Paradox of #AntiracistEdLeadership in #Edsystems- thoughts I've been really mulling abt in the past while. Have to admit, I've been sitting on this for a couple weeks. Grateful to those who helped me sift through my thinking <3 Here's to #courageousconversations
True #AntiRacist Leadership can only happen when you are anchored in #communities and you do the work #buildrelationships #seekadvice #love & #beLoved by those who give you #permission & #legitimacy to continue the struggle in boardrooms.
When I became a senior leader in Edu. I was advised that - You cannot be on the streets & in the boardrooms. "its time to choose. Its a different struggle." I didnt choose bc WE deserve to be in the boardroom but THAT choice comes at a #price

This #ManufactureOfDoubt script has been used by the #formulaindustry from the very beginning. You can see it from 19th century advertisements through today. The script is a #social one, exactly as @prof_goldberg says - and where #culturalideologies & #politicaleconomy intersect.
Perfect for some #anthropological analysis. In case of #formulamarketing, the social script for #ManufactureofDoubt exploits & enhances existing #culturalideologies of anxiety abt #breastfeeding which have been around since late 19th cent among white, upper class women & spread
#Biomedicalization of #childbirth & #infantfeeding played a key part in deepening these anxieties & facilitated the #normalization of #infantformula by mid 20th cent, esp via medical experts & hospital practices that entailed routine separation & scheduled feeding

One thing I’m worried about—in addition to my family’s safety—re: #Maria in #PuertoRico is how #colonialism capitalizes on #NaturalDisaster
In the early 1900s US #businesses were able to monopolize #PuertoRican farm land after Hurricane San Ciriaco (1899) devastated the #island
#Farmers who were never able to rebuild after the #hurricane were forced to either give up their #land or enter unjust agreements
