Abstract: I try to problematize the idea of the university as an academic space. In so doing, I fi rst ask why Ambedkar is not routinely taught in compulsory courses in Indian curricula. Second, I ask in what ways Ambedkar is made present in Indian academic discourse—as a producer of knowledge, as a purveyor of ideas, or as an identity. Finally, I conclude with remarks serving to summarize what it is that Ambedkar seems to mean to the Indian academic space and how he and his work is preponderantly perceived by academic institutions.
