Right Wing Politics and the Indian University
September 14, 2017, 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Professor G. Arunima is a historian whose research and publications engage both the historical and the contemporary contexts of India, focusing particularly on cultural, visual and material texts, and rethinking the politics of the contemporary. She has recently contributed to a volume What Does the Nation Really Need to Know: The JNU Nationalism Lectures (Harper Collins, 2016), an archive of an unprecedented month long public lecture series that took place in 2016 by JNU teachers to address the question of who or what is anti-national within the Indian polity. Her presentation will address the role of the public university in times of privatization and the intellectual, political and academic freedoms at stake.
