Abstract

An analysis of class, caste and gender patterns in higher education from the 66th NSS survey shows that they must be understood in an interconnected manner. The ways in which these have been theorized as systems of inequality are reviewed to draw out some bridging strands. Moving away from a unlinear perspective, a multidimensional and intersectional theory of inequality is turned towards by highlighting three tropes – occupation, culture and kinship – which are central simultaneously across class, caste as well as gender. It is suggested through examples from the sphere of education that examining the convergences and divergences between these respective systems of inequality around the three shared tropes helps us to understand inequality in a relatively more comprehensive manner
