Changing India Lecture Series

Changing India is a series of events hosted by NIAS and supported by the Pratiksha Trust. It is a joint initiative of a few faculty members and research scholars from different disciplines. The series builds on the legacy of M N Srinivas, a major sociologist of modern India and a key figure in the history of NIAS. He was deeply invested in understanding how the Indian social and political landscape developed after Independence, sometimes taking unexpected turns. Building on the social thought of Prof. Srinivas, the ‘Changing India’ series of lectures, events and workshops will host key academics, writers, public intellectuals, artists and social justice activists to reflect on some of the pertinent questions of our time.
