Whither ‘labour’? Shortfalls of the ethnic discourse in Darjeeling


Wenner, Miriam (2015). Whither ‘labour’? Shortfalls of the ethnic discourse in Darjeeling. Cafe Dissensus, 20:online.

Abstract

Contrary to the concerns of tea plantation labourers, who emphasised their hopes for an improvement of their positions in (or outside of) the tea industry, and gave equal importance to the material and symbolic dimensions of Gorkhaland, political leaders of the ruling Gorkha Janmutki Morcha (GJM) seemed to ignore such aspirations.

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
