Liberalism and its Indian Afterlife

19 - 20 Dec '18 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
 
 

At no time in the past has the term ‘liberal’ dominated political debate in India and indeed the world as it does today. Whether deployed sneeringly as an insult or defended by those worried about the rise of what they consider to be populist authoritarianism, liberalism has assumed a truly global urgency in our time. Whether this Nineteenth Century idea has taken on a new lease of life or is instead fading away, its ubiquity demands our attention. This two-day seminar will focus on the Indian history of liberalism, whose possibilities as well as limitations shall be examined by way of its fundamental categories, including political interest, secularism, democracy and humanity.

• Intimacy and Interest in Indian Political Thought
• Gandhi Against the Human Race
• Godless Secularism: Europe, India and Religion
• Ambedkar’s Politics: Democracy without Nationalism

Registration: Rs 2000/-
(Rs.1000 with Student ID)
