The Empire of Disgust

Format: Academic Monograph
Media: Hardback
PublisherCode: 9780199487837
Publisher: OUP India

All known societies exclude and stigmatize one or more minority groups, frequently employing a rhetoric of disgust to justify this stigmatization. In this volume, interdisciplinary scholars from India and the United States present a detailed and theoretically pluralistic study of the varieties of stigma that pervade contemporary social and political life. These include prejudice along the axes of caste, race, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, disability, religion, ethnicity, and economic class. Looking forward the authors present legal and policy-based remedies aimed at eliminating pervasive stigma in all of its diverse forms.
