The 2023 edition of the Summer School will take place between Monday 26 and Friday 30 June, and for this year we have decided to focus on the dichotomy between an ‘official’ image of India (its history, society but also economy), dear to the government and proposed daily by the mainstream media, and undercurrents of marginality, fear but also dissent and cultural vibrancy. The idea is to start from the numerous debates on cancel culture, censorship and the suppression of dissent, the programme of lectures will ideally follow a path from historical contextualization, to current issues relating to marginal communities, economic issues, cinema and literature, as well as the press, politics, gender, marginality.
In response to the growing interest in India in the era of globalisation, the Department of Culture, Politics and Society of the University of Turin is pleased to announce the fifth edition of the Summer School on “Politics, Development and Social Change in Contemporary India”.
Through an interdisciplinary approach, the School provides students with an extraordinary opportunity to analyse key political, social and cultural issues of contemporary India. Important recent trajectories of social change – as well as continuity – will be explored, encouraging critical reflection among students.
