Event Description : "Exploring Indian Modernities" A discussion and release of a book edited by Professor Leila Chokroune and Professor Parul Bhandari

Introductory Remarks

Prof. Leïla Choukroune and Dr. Parul Bhandari

Multidisciplinary and Longitudinal Perspectives

in Conversation with Prof. Balveer Arora; Prof. Jayati Ghosh; Prof. Savita Singh; Dr Simona Sawhney

This book analyses how multiple and hybrid ‘modernities’ have been shaped in colonial and postcolonial India from the lens of sociology and anthropology, literature, media and cultural studies, law and political economy. It discusses the ideas that shaped these modernities as well as the lived experience and practice of these modernities. The two broad foci in this book are: (a) The dynamism of modern institutions in India, delineating the specific ways in which ideas of modernity have come to define these institutions and how institutional innovations have shaped modernities; and (b) perspectives on every day practices of modernities and the cultural constituents of being modern
