Hindu View of Life: Speaking For and Against Oneself

Thursday, March 22, 2018, 5:30-7:00 PM

CSWR Common Room

Hindu View of Life

The Hindu tradition is intrinsically plural and contextual, and offers resources not only for one to speak for oneself as Hindu in a world of diversity, but also explore one's moral location through materials that speak against one's assumed identity. Through reflection on three key textual passages, Chakravarthi Ram-Prasad will engage with the intersectional nature of his Hindu identity. This examination of Hinduism and intersectionality will offer a new perspective on how identity is creatively and constantly reconfigured by the textual lessons and the lived reality of religious traditions.  

This event will be livestreamed, and can be accessed here on Thursday, March 22, at 5:30 PM.
