India: A Veneration Nation?
Archaeology Lecture Theatre |
14 Taviton Street | London | WC1H 0BW | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
This one-day conference examines India critically through the lens of a “Veneration Nation”: a country with thriving and recursive cultures of adulatory practices and aesthetics. By looking at contemporary research on India that invokes ideas of ritual, spectacle, devotion and affectivity, the event will interrogate and extend the application of analytic categories such as ‘religion’, ‘politics’ and ‘embodiment’. The conference is accompanied by an ethnographic exhibition from private collections and a short film screening.
Speakers include post-fieldwork PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and other recent PhDs, as well as established academics such as Keynote Speaker Sumathi Ramaswamy (Duke Center for South Asian Studies), Bhaskar Mukhopadhyay (Goldsmiths Centre for Cultural Studies) and Christopher Pinney (UCL Anthropology- Material & Visual Culture).
The conference is free and includes a catered lunch. To register, email Jill Reese (see below).
