Hey Mia,

And what about the stuff from the Heidelberg Online journal that you've
contributed to? There's stuff in there about marginal religious movements
and their online presence (though it's now quite a bit dated).

Hello,

There is "Global primordialities: virtual identity
politics in online Hindutva and online Dalit
discourse" by Rohit Chopra. You can find the abstract
at http://nms.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/8/2/187

There is also a book, Untouchable Citizens: Dalit
Movements And Democratization In Tamil Nadu by Hugo
Gorringe. It's available online if you google for it.

Hope it helps.

Cheers,

Ertug
