Resumo

Este artigo tem como base um trabalho etnográfico de longa duração realizado na Índia rural (Gujarate) com um grupo de mulheres Dalit (termo pelo qual são designados os “antigos” intocáveis da Índia) e, por extensão, mulheres de outros grupos sociais. Pretendo analisar a forma como a produção, distribuição e confecção de alimentos funcionam simultaneamente como formas de segregação feminina e de afirmação de poder por parte das mulheres, sobretudo em situações ligadas à fecundidade.

Abstract

This article is grounded on a long-term fieldwork carried out in rural India (Gujarat) with a group of Dalit women (the term for which are designated the “old” untouchables of India) and, by extension, with women from other social groups. I intend to analyze how food production, distribution, and cooking operate both as a form of segregation and of women’s assertion of power, particularly in situations related to fertility.

Key Words: Dalit, Gender, Food Codification, India.
