Das Südasien-Institut lädt herzlich zum Vortrag „The Bogey-Man of Area Studies“ von Prof. Sasanka Perera Perera (Erasmus-Stipendiat des SAI, gemeinsam mit Dev Nath Pathak, South Asia University, New Delhi, Department of Sociology) ein, welcher am 6. Februar 2019, 18 Uhr im Karl Jaspers Centre, Room 212, Voßstrasse 2, stattfindet.
By placing in context the twin histories of areas studies that emerged during the European colonial and expansion as well as after the end of World War II and briefly surveying the critiques levelled against these approaches, the presentation seeks to argue for a new kind of approach to read South Asia. It argues that this approach should ideally not be bound by disciplinary or geo-political boundaries in the region, but should be guided by thematics that run across these borders and over time. The approach emerges from recent and continuing work undertaken by a group of sociologists at the South Asian University in New Delhi necessitated by their research and pedagogic needs as well as politics.
