About Intimacy And Belonging In Contemporary India

About Events

Intimacy and Belonging in Contemporary India organized by Indian Institute Of Advanced Study which will be held from April 4 2016 to April 6 2016. This conference, focusing on the emerging forms of intimacies in contemporary India, is also an attempt to understand/address the politics behind the changing notion/nature of belonging. What causes or inhibits intimacy and what restricts or disfigures one’s identity of belonging? Questions can be asked, if at all the transformation in the modes of intimacies--resulting from transnational ties, migration/ immigration, rise of alternative socio-economic doctrines, new communication technologies and/or transnational media, and thereby giving rise to intimate spaces/ intimate settings for intimate encounters—have in actuality, paved way for transversal and emancipatory structures that can politically challenge the hegemonic, traditional, Indian concepts/norms of belongings, erstwhile restricted to the rigid boundaries of class, caste, religion, region and normative conformity.
