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.
