Female Saints, Bhakti Thought, and the Idea of India

3:00–8:00 pm
UChicago Center in Delhi

Oct.
19

Contemporary discussions on morality, ethics, and the role of the individual in society have led to a renewed interest in the literature and life stories of saints of the so-called “bhakti movement” that spread across the Indian subcontinent in the late medieval and early modern period (and that continues to shape devotional culture in South Asia today). Of particular interest are the poetry and life stories of female saints like Antal, Annamaya, Sahajobai, and Mirabai: how can (or should) we “read” their poetry and lives as documents of resistance, strategies of subversion, or attempts to establish alternative moral and ethical structures and authority? What does it mean to listen to the words of these and other saints within the context of their own times, and what does it mean to listen to (and repeat) them in our own? 


“Nudging” in Program Design & Policymaking

Time TBA
UChicago Center in Delhi

Oct.
16

This workshop organised by International Innovation Corps (IIC) will be held in collaboration with NITI Aayog and will deliberate on the idea of leveraging behavioural insights to inform the policymaking discourse in India. The discussion will focus on how behavioural science and ‘nudge’ practices can be applied to ongoing gender programming and policymaking. Economists, researchers, practitioners and policymakers will discuss what concepts have worked in India and could work for gender while also identifying specific nudges that could be piloted with ongoing gender initiatives at NITI Aayog.

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.
