Caste, Music, and Microinequities with Supriya Subramani


In this episode, Pat speaks with Dr Supriya Subramani.

Dr Subramani's interest in morality and ethics has led her to explore morality, behaviour, and ethics in healthcare contexts. She has worked on the concepts of belonging, micro-inequities, moral habitus, the idea of the passive patient, the social construction of incompetency, and reflexivity.

They discuss caste and contemporary music, resistance and poetry, and autonomy and participatory theatre.
