Over the past 5,000 years, the cultures and peoples of the Indian subcontinent have developed in fascinating and complex ways. Today, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh comprise over 20% of the world’s population and form one of humanity’s most dynamic and significant core groups. In this workshop, we will discover that the best way to understand present conditions in the subcontinent is to sketch the development of their peoples from the earliest human presence in the region up to the present. The thread we will trace is the changing, yet somehow consistent, culture of India.

Everything was going according to the plan of modernity up until the last quarter of the 20th century. Religion was gradually getting used to the its disestablishment, liberal theology was on the ascendant and the processes of “secularization” and “privatization” of religion were making gradual progress. But the world looks different today, doesn’t it? This lecture will explore the roots of the return of strong religion with a particular focus on the prospects of Islamic reform in the remainder of our century.
