Keynote Address

Takashi Shinoda (Professor, Daito Bunka University)

South Asia has become one of the growing centers in the developing world after economic liberalization and globalization in the recent years. Accordingly, the area has gone through various changes that have resulted in enlarging disparities among regions, religious groups, social groups, income groups and rural/urban divisions. This social transformation has also brought about cultural changes in the mode and function of various social organizations such as family, caste and local community, and has changed the code of conduct and the sense of values.

What kind of influence has this rapid social change had on a life of people particularly who belonged to the periphery of the society such as minorities, weaker sections, subaltern, dalits, adivasis and backward classes? How have those who belonged to the periphery tried to explore their new code of conduct and identity through their political, social and religious movements?

In this one-day workshop we are interested in papers with a theoretical perspective and empirical data on social transformation and cultural change from the perspectives of the socio-economic periphery.
