IIAS Seminar: Perspectives on Contemporary India
April 16, 2015 - 00:00-April 17, 2015 - 00:00
The 21st Century India has been experiencing fundamental changes in society, politics, economy and culture. Intertwining of modernity and tradition has produced complex social relations. Though villages are ‘vanishing’ giving way to the ever expanding urban landscape, yet village India carries its resonance to the urban India. Legitimacy and rationale of old social identities based on caste, tribe and community are challenged and reconfigured after negotiations and confrontations.
Convenor: Prof. Pralay Kanungo, ICCR Chair for the Study of Contemporary India at IIAS / Leiden University
