Environment in focus at Oslo University’s 4th annual India seminar
The University of Oslo holds its 4th Annual Contemporary India Seminar on Thursday 6 September 2012, 09.30–17.00. The theme for the 2012 seminar is ”The Politics of Environmental Challenges in India”. It seeks to explore how various environmental challenges are politicised in India. The organisers wish to examine how environmental issues have entered the realm of political discussions as a result of intentional actions by individuals or groups, who have sought to mobilise people around environmental agendas.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Beppe Karlsson, Dept. of Social Anthropology, Stockholm University, who will give a lecture on ”Into the Grid: Hydropower and Subaltern Politics in Northeast India”.
The seminar is organised by the Nordic Forum for South Asia (NoFSA) and the Dept. of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages (IKOS), in collaboration with the Nordic Network for the Study of Environmental Challenges in South Asia (NECSA). Venue: 12th floor canteen, Niels Treschow’s House, University of Oslo, Blindern. Please register your participation in the seminar by 3 September to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
