2013 NCI summer courses on Contemporary India at Hyderabad
February 5, 2013 - 03:26
The Nordic Centre in India university consortium organises two short term summer courses for Nordic students in India during the summer 2013, one based at Hyderabad and the other at Bangalore. The courses are as follows:
Contemporary India. An Interdisciplinary Introduction Course. This course is being held for the 11th year at the University of Hyderabad during the period 30 June – 27 July 2013. It is tailor-made for 50 Nordic students and introduces issues of politics, culture and economy. It consists of the following five parts:
– Introductory course
– The diversity of India
– The political system and questions of identity
– Globalisation and the economy focusing on the city of Hyderabad
– Development, environment and human rights, and
– Indian literature and cinema.
Approaching the Environment in India. Issues and Methods in the Study of the Nature-Economy-Society Interface
Institute for Social and Economic Change, Bangalore
7th July to 3rd August 2013
Capacity: 22 students
The courses are available in the 7.5 ECTS variant and the 10 ECTS variant. The course structure remains the same with the exception of additional coursework for students opting for the 10 ECTS variant.
Typically each university has their own deadline, so we do not have an overarching deadline for receiving students nominations. But it would be ideal to receive the names of interested students and their details by March 31st, 2013 so that the students, host institutes, and NCI have enough time to make practical arrangements for the course. You can also encourage interested students to independently approach us if they have missed their university deadline.
Given the unequal demand among the member universities and with the goal of filling all the seats being offered in the three courses we would like you to not limit your nominations to just three students as was the earlier practice. If there are more students than required for the course we will look at member university/institute representation and the academic qualifications of the competing students to finally decide who gets selected.
Attached is a pdf of the posters for this year… the hardcopies will be mailed to you from NCI’s University of Eastern Finland office. Students can direct all their queries to me at [email protected] and also refer our website: http://www.nordiccentreindia.com/ for more information about the courses.’
Hope you have a good holiday and here’s wishing you a happy 2013…. It will be good to finally meet you in Bangalore at the workshop.
