ToIndia Summer School 2023: Politics, Development and Social Change in Contemporary India


The University of Turin is proudly announcing the organisation of the 6th edition of the Summer School ToIndia, which will take place between Monday 26 and Friday 30 June.

The 2023 edition will focus on „India Silenced. Censorship, Repression, Dissent“

The programme will focus on the dichotomy between an ‘official’ image of India (its history, society but also economy), dear to the government and proposed daily by the mainstream media, and undercurrents of marginality, fear but also dissent and cultural vibrancy. The idea is to start from the numerous debates on cancel culture, censorship and the suppression of dissent, the programme of lectures will ideally follow a path from historical contextualization, to current issues relating to marginal communities, economic issues, cinema and literature, as well as the press, politics, gender, marginality.

40 hours of classes, discussions and symposia, starting on Monday 26 June: lecutres (among others) by Sumathi Ramaswamy (Duke), Kajri Jain (Toronto University), Felix Padel (University of Sussex), Subir Sinha (SOAS), Alice Tilche (Leicester University), Sandhya Fuchs (University of Edinburgh), Urvashi Butalia (Zubaan Publishers)
