Jose Maliekal teaches at St John's Regional Seminary (Institute of Philosophy, Religious Studies and Social Sciences), Kondadaba, Vizianagaram District, Andhra Pradesh, India. His areas of research are subaltern perspectives on the production of knowledge, Dalit identities and the impact of religion on socio-economic transformation. “Based on thorough ethnographic field work and phenomenologico-hermeneutical reflection, “Standstill Utopias? Dalits Encountering Christianity” is an invitation to the social world of Dalit Christians. Offering a new and challenging interpretation of the predicament of Dalit Christianity in creating a new lifeworld for Dalits, the book weaves in narratives, by exploring the domains of political economy and consciousness of the subalterns. This book will remain a classic in the field of critical social sciences and Dalit Studies.” Sanal Mohan (School of Social Sciences, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Author of Modernity of Slavery: Struggles Against Caste Inequality in Colonial Kerala) “Life in broken margins is a sadhana and struggle for new hermeneutics and practice of self and social liberation. Jose Maliekal’s deeply engaging study of Madigas of Konaseema presents us a moving portrayal of how primal and historical energies of creativity, critique and resistance come together for generating new dialectics of freedom. The book presents us pathways of a primordial theology of engagements which also challenges us to explore further a new primal theology of compassion and confrontation in which political economy, moral economy and spiritual impulse can come together for creation of a life of wholeness in the midst of broken fragments of domination and destruction.” Ananta Kumar Giri (Madras Institute of Development Studies, Author of Knowledge and Human Liberation: Towards Planetary Realizations)
