Book launch: Outrage – The rise of Religious Offence in Modern South Asia

October 18, 2019 - 17:00-19:00

Whether spurred by religious images or academic history books, hardly a day goes by in South Asia without an incident or court case occurring as a result of hurt religious feelings. The sharp rise in blasphemy accusations over the past few decades calls for an investigation into why offence politics has become so pronounced, and why it is observable across religious and political differences.

The volume Outrage: The Rise of Religious Offence in Contemporary South Asia is edited by Paul Rollier, Kathinka Frøystad, and Arild Engelsen Ruud.
