【TINDAS】2018 TINDAS International Workshop “Religion, Nation, and State in Modern India”

【TINDAS】2018 TINDAS International Workshop “Religion, Nation, and State in Modern India”

 

Date: 27th, March, 2019

Venue: Building 18, Collaboration Room 3 (4th floor) in Komaba Campus, the University of Tokyo

 

 The issues of religion have always been in the news in modern India. The policies of the state toward religion and religious minorities often changed with the rise of new ruling powers, which presented their own ideas of the nation and tried to reconstruct state institutions accordingly. Such changes were accompanied by active public debates and social and political movements by various groups of people.
 This workshop attempts to examine how religious issues have been discussed and articulated by the state and by different social groups in India. By focusing on several different moments in the colonial and postcolonial periods, it aims to deepen our understanding of changes as well as continuity in the ideas of religion, nation, and state in modern India from a long-term perspective.
