Kathikudam is a riparian village in the South Indian state of Kerala which has been home to a transnational company, Nitta Gelatin Inc. For more than a decade, women subsistence farmers in the region have been protesting and organizing against the operations of this corporation. Binoy’s presentation will illuminate vignettes of the social reproduction of gendered experiences of living and fighting a toxic commons in Kathikudam.
