The National Institute of Technology, Silchar with generous support form the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) is organizing a Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) course titled: Images as Modes of Knowledge, Social Practice and Affect, during 29 Nov-9 December 2017.

This course zeroes in on two specialized subfields within film/media studies: documentary studies and sexuality-gender issues. It seeks to historicize the shifts in the trajectory of the ‘committed documentary’ film away from Old-Left class-based utopia to a New-Left-driven social-movement confessionality and the post-war emergence of censor-shattering sexual discourses across the spectrum of visual genres in the contexts of both India and North America.
Professor Thomas Waugh, Concorida University, Canada will teach the course. We look forward to your participation. Please share this call with relevant individuals, organizations, and networks. Complete course details including registration information and the course outline is available here: http://www.gian.iitkgp.ac.in//files/brochures/BR1505389188brochure_TW.pdf

National Institute of Technology Silchar with generous support form the MHRD is organizing a Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) course titled: Religion, Ideologies & Nationalism in South Asia, during 23-28 October 2017.

The importance of religion in the public sphere is exceedingly being felt. Nations as ‘imagined communities’ speak to the profound need for both legitimacy and belonging(ness), often articulated through one’s religious vis-a-vis ethnic identities in the modern world. This course will address this issue by focusing on the relationships between religion, geo-politics and the emergence and proliferation of nationalism. To illustrate the complexity and richness of the topic, this course will touch upon a diverse range of themes – proselytization, Orientalism, nationalist historiography, cartography, scientization, secularism, the Partition, multiculturalism, caste, gender, postcoloniality etc. — in the context of South Asia.

Ishita Banerjee-Dube, Professor of History at the Center for Asian and African Studies, El Colegio de México, will teach the course. We look forward to your participation. Complete course details including registration information and the course outline is available here: https://goo.gl/93SDvU.
