CALL FOR PAPERS
 
 
SEMINAR
Development Paradigms and the Cultures of Resistance:
A Comparative Perspective from India and Latin America
Centre for European and Latin American Studies and Centre for Jawaharlal Nehru Studies
Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi
February 14-16, 2008
 
Recent years have witnessed a growing solidarity between India and the nations of the Latin American region as they attempt to cope with the challenges posed by globalization. The solidarity has been expressed at the level of state to state relations evidenced in attempts to harmonize positions at international forums such as WTO etc as well as between people and popular movements.
 
The Centre for European and Latin American Studies and the Centre for Jawaharlal Nehru Studies at the Jamia Millia Islamia jointly propose to hold a seminar to develop an understanding about the common concerns and traditions of resistance shared by the people of India and Latin America in the contemporary context as well as to provide a platform to promote research collaborations between institutions and scholars in the two regions.
 
The seminar is an attempt to look at patterns of development and the cultures of resistance against them as experienced in both India and Latin America. These cultures of protest and resistance, grounded in the anti-colonial struggles of the peoples of these regions, can unravel the possibilities of an alternative vision of modernity. The seminar will gather scholars working on both India and Latin America from within the country, together with selected experts from Latin America.
Some of the issues that would be addressed in the seminar include:
 
The nature of the transformation in the political economy of Latin America and India in the age of globalization
 
The similarities and differences between the social movements in India and Latin America in their structure, ideologies, and historical trajectories
 
The impact of the renewed agency of the indigenous people on their social status and on that of other marginalized sectors such as women and the urban poor
 
Ways of cooperation and collaboration between India and Latin America in state and society.
Papers with a comparative perspective (preferably) are invited for the seminar. Each participant will be given 30 minutes for presentation followed by a discussion of about 20 minutes.
