Democratic Theory in India

11/08/2018 - 9:00am to 11/09/2018 - 5:30pm
Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society

This conference, sponsored by the Theorizing Indian Democracy project at the Neubauer Collegium, explores conceptual dimensions of modern democratic politics through a focus on colonial and postcolonial India. The conference brings together political theorists, philosophers, historians, and legal scholars working on South Asian history, political theory, law, and postcolonial studies in a collaborative space. The goal is to advance the burgeoning interest in postcolonial and non-Western political thought. “Democratic Theory in India” is organized around three guiding themes: the intellectual history of political concepts in modern India; the social and cultural dimensions of democratic practices; and normative issues around citizenship and state institutions.
