Aparna Parikh co-authors publication with WGSS alum Clara Miller

Aparna Parikh, assistant teaching professor of WGSS, and Clara Miller, a Penn State alum who majored in WGSS, have a new co-written publication out, “Between Bos and Babulas: Bovine Politics and Multispecies Disciplining in India”. This short piece explains that symbolism attached to cows in India has objectified them and been marshalled to discipline already marginalized groups. They suggest that a focus on shared multispecies vulnerability could help counter this Brahmanical cow protectionist approach.

Congratulations to them both!
