"This research proposes to examine experiences of post-restitution landlessness among adivasis of Telangana. Drawing attention to documentary artefacts such as title deeds, the research investigates how they come to shape and mediate the relationship between adivasis, the state and land; and thus, suggests the need to reconceptualise restitution. To that end, this research seeks to explore how landlessness is conceived and how restitution may coproduce dispossession."
