Example text

For instance, when discussing the political significance of the temple entry movement, Sunder Rajan comments: ‘It is interesting and surely significant that in Bharathipura, Anantha Murthy combines a Gramscian – Ambedkarite interest in the strategic aspects of subaltern mobilisation of this kind, with more specific ethical issues surrounding subaltern representation’ (Sunder Rajan 2012: 176, emphasis in the original).

([1927a] BAWS 2: 62) A slogan on the front page of the weekly L'Ordine Nuovo, co-founded by Gramsci (1919), reads thus: ‘Educate yourselves because we'll need all your intelligence.
