UCLA Center for the Study of Women
In Conversation With Lata Mani

- et al.
After her talk at UCLA on February 10, Professor Lata Mani graciously extended her time and critical thinking to this interview and helped frame it as a conversation, rather than a didactic exposition of her work. I am grateful for both. As a continuation of her talk, this interchange refers to the problems she raised in it, but I hope it will also be accessible to those who were not present. In her talk, she discussed varied topics, from Taylorism as an industrial process to the possibly productive relationship between secular academic discourse and sacred knowledge.
