Heidelberg Alumni India (HAIN) Contest 2016

Dear Alumni,

As promised earlier this year during our HAIN National Alumni Meeting in New Delhi we return to you with details on the exciting international event “20 Years HAI – Anniversary Celebration 2016” in Heidelberg next year and your possible participation in it.

Keeping our motto of growing Heidelberg University’s internationalization, visibility and its commitment to support and grow alumni networking, we proudly present you “The HAIN Contest 2016”.

The idea of this contest is to reward your active participation in promoting Heidelberg University, Heidelberg Alumni International (HAI) and Heidelberg Alumni India (HAIN) in India. This promotion can be done in two areas:

A) Promoting Heidelberg University by fostering Indo-German research collaborations, exchange programs, joint events and identifying funding sources.

B) Promoting HAI and HAIN by conducting alumni meetings, identifying and mobilizing more alumni to register on HAInet and on HAIN and keeping them engaged.

The two best contributors will be supported through air travel and accommodation to attend the “20 Years HAI – Anniversary Celebration” in Heidelberg in July 2016.

Eligible for participation are all former and current students, researchers, administrative and teaching staff of Heidelberg University who are registered with Heidelberg Alumni International (HAI).

To join the network please visit

For further details on the procedure, the criteria and the timelines of the contest please see the call for participation.

Workshop on “Inhabited Pasts: The Many Lives of Monuments in Delhi”


This open, one-day workshop will discuss the inhabitation of monuments in Delhi. In an attempt to depart from the notion of the monument as a physically static and socially-sterile edifice, this workshop will consider monuments as social and spatial canvases; providing shelter, solitude, the possibility of privacy and romantic, devotional and commercial opportunity. Papers will explore a range of issues associated with the permanent and transitory inhabitation of monuments in the city, now and in the past. How are monuments animated by social interactions, negotiations and conflicts? The definition of the monument may include sites subject to legislated protection as well as structures which are part of localised registers of memory and history. How do occupants conceive of their rights to and within the spaces of the monument? How do conservation authorities respond, both in disciplining publics at the monument and in attempting to uncouple the monument from its immediate physical and social environs? The workshop is an opportunity to consider alternative understandings of the monument, and of heritage, that might owe more to understandings of these structures as dynamic spaces of resort than to the cultural precepts of modern conservation practise.
