Public Seminar on 9th February, 2018
Re-imagining Youthhood and Higher Education in Contemporary India
At Samvada, we have constantly asked ourselves what education means, as we have been continuously challenged while creating and delivering educational interventions that are sensitive to young people and relevant for social transformation. We hope this seminar was of interest to all those invested in the histories and futures of higher education in the country. In the seminar we attempted to address questions related to social equality and inclusion, emotional landscapes of the young, building a secular, just and sustainable world, emerging crises in education and critical engagement with educational processes.
