The State of the Humanities and the Arts in India

Through December 18, 2019
UChicago Center in Delhi

Begins
Dec. 17

The symposium aims to explore pressing issues motivating and foreclosing research and practice in the humanities and the arts in contemporary India. The humanities in India have been shaped by the history of colonialism, mass migration following the partition, the establishment of a secular democratic state in 1947, and debates concerning the role of citizen-subjects. The secular ideal of the newly-independent nation-state gave rise to disciplinary formations that shared some characteristics of the modern disciplines established during the period of the secularization of the universities in Europe and America in the nineteenth century. But these formations also diverged in interesting ways as the new nation began to come to terms with its unique location in Asia at the height of the Cold War. The country’s democratic socialist foundations led to the establishment of large state-funded universities that were primed to educate its citizens in science, technology and the social sciences, with the humanities often featuring as an option or an afterthought. This symposium will bring together some of India’s most distinguished scholars, writers, artists and public intellectuals so that our organization has an opportunity to learn about the intellectual and political landscape of the country as it pertains to humanistic knowledge, democratic cultures and academic freedom.
