Citizenship in a Caste Polity: Religion, Language and Belonging in Goa

01 August 2020

 Jason Keith Fernandes

This book examines the mass demonstrations in Goa in the 1980s that preceded the declaration of Konkani as an official language, though only in the Devanagari, not the Roman, script. Through research and interviews, the author looks at demands that have sprung up since, particularly among Goa’s Catholics.
