September 22, 2017 - 11:25

The Danish Tranquebar Association organises an anthropological summer course in Tamil Nadu, India, 8 –22 July 2014. The course is led by Dr. Lars Kjærholm, Lecturer at the Department of Anthropology, Århus University. The focus lies on the former Danish trading station Trankebar, but the participants will also visit other places on the Coromandel coast such as Mahabalipuram, Puducherry and Tanjore.

The Tranquebar Association was established in 2002 with the objective to strengthen the historical and cultural cooperation between India and Denmark. Work has concentrated on restoring several heritage buildings in Tranquebar, including the old Danish Fort, but also to do relief work after tthe tsunami in 2004.

Even though the summer course is primarily intended for teachers, it is open for any interested person to participate. It includes studies on topics such as Film and Politics in Tamil Nadu; Social and Cultural processes of change in current India; the Dalit struggle for integration; and Co-existence of religious traditions in South India. A preparatory meeting will be held in Copenhagen on Saturday 5 April 2014.
