Early Historical Thought in Eurasian Context

All day
UChicago Center in Delhi

Sep.
13

From the late centuries before the beginning of the Common Era, deep into its first millennium, disparate societies across the Eurasian landmass developed ways of engaging with their past, through narrative, material culture, forms of language-use, and ways of cultured being. The sources that emerged from these differing cultures of history provide the bedrock on which the modern historian of the ancient world constructs her argument and interpretation. The specialist abilities required in order to work in any of these areas are formidable, and each historiography is possessed of its own debates and dynamics. Research questions moving across the different historical cultures (for instance, the study of early Inner Asia) and expressly comparative studies of these cultures exist, but the need for a cross-cutting dialogue between different areas, is especially urgent. Recent and exciting research on the interconnections at the level of ideas and material culture across the supercontinent suggests the need to think collectively and critically the interconnected ways of knowing the past across Eurasia.

Progressing with Partnerships: Shared Decision-Making Among Vulnerable Groups

Through September 17, 2019
UChicago Center in Delhi

Begins
Sep. 16

Medical Council of India’s Attitude, Ethics and Communication (AETCOM) Competencies for the Indian Medical Graduate in the new curriculum mentions Shared-Decision Making (SDM) as a core competency (competency 3, 12 and modules 1.3, 2.2, 2.5). It is also explicitly stated as a demonstratable behaviour among one of the five roles (Communicator) of an Indian Medical Graduate.

Despite the advancements made in the new curriculum, SDM among vulnerable populations, including persons with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ populations, those with chronic pain and in palliative care, those at the end of life, and racial/ethnic minorities are not explicitly stated. Understanding how gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, chronic pain, end of life care and race can simultaneously influence shared decision making is an important step in addressing health disparities among such vulnerable  populations.

Global Technology in Local Contexts: Lithography in Asia

Through March 17, 2020
UChicago Center in Delhi

Begins
Mar. 16

The year 2022 will mark the bicentenary of the arrival of lithography in India, a watershed moment in the history of printing in South Asia that has been described as more significant than the advent of movable type in 1556. An inexpensive, easily accessible printing technology, lithography enjoyed extraordinary success in India; it has been associated with the “democratization of print” in South Asia and rise of commercial printing and journalism in Indian languages. Within India’s multilingual/multiscript cultural landscape, lithography was a versatile mass production medium, while also providing a link with manuscript traditions in its ability to replicate fine calligraphy. Across the Islamic world, Muslim communities embraced it for both religious and secular printing.
 


India’s Francophone Literature

French, long a language of colonial power in India, is still present in Indian literature today. Generally ignored in the English-speaking world, India's francophone literature is gaining a new lease on life, as new authors contribute to its growing corpus, as translations of major literary works appear, and as scholars develop new perspectives on this site of cultural encounter.
