Workshop "Fertility, phenomenology of the body, and postcolonial modernity in India"

9 December 2016, 9am - 12:30pm. CeMIS Board Room, 2.112 Altbau, Waldweg 26, 37073 Göttingen

The workshop will discuss the strengths of "phenomenology" and how it helps to unpack inherited modern dichotomies, including the advantages phenomenology offers over critical, post-structuralist styles of feminism. With a particular focus on questions of fertility in postcolonial India, it will provide a space for students and researchers to reflect on the frameworks that they use to study the body, health, sexuality and/or gender.


Kalpana Ram , Macquarie University: "Spirit Possession and its Provocation of the Modern: Re-casting Frameworks for Researching Women's Health and Fertility".

Sayani Mitra , University of Göttingen: "Affective embodiments: the case of commercial surrogacy in India".

Zaid Al Baset, CSSSC, Kolkata/CeMIS: Discussant

Texts will be circulated before the workshop.

People wishing to participate will have to register via e-mail by 5 December 2016 and will be sent the texts. Please contact: karin.klenke@cemis.uni-goettingen.de

Print Exhibition: CeMIS International Photo Competition 2016

Inequality and Diversity in Contemporary India

In early 2016, the Centre for Modern Indian Studies called for entries to the CeMIS International Photo Competition 2016. The jury was especially looking for photos that creatively engaged with the theme "Inequality and Diversity in Contemporary India". From hundreds of entries, the jury selected 19 finalists that did just that - going far beyond the typical, cliched representations of India. The shortlisted photos were posted as an online exhibition on our facebook page, with voting open to the public. A jury prize was also named. The exhibition is part of CeMIS' India inside/out programme to bring contemporary art and culture from India to Göttingen.

Organized by the Centre for Modern Indian Studies (CeMIS) in cooperation with Studentenwerk at the University of Göttingen, Germany.

Platz der Göttinger Sieben 4, Göttingen
From 27 October 2016
