Community, Gender & Violence (2002) is XI volume of the subaltern studies project, which evolved into a stunning critique of the limits of disciplinary historiography. A conference in Sri Lanka, that Pradeep helped organize gave rise to this set of essays; the volume builds on older work to take new directions. His chapter examines the epistemologically unstable location of a practice of 'Sinhala Masculinity' in an attempt to map the limits of disciplinary anthropology. He was honored to edit this book, with Partha Chatterjee, a scholar of great distinction.
