This visual exhibit is part of the Rising Nationalisms, Fading Minorities: Reflections on the Promises of Secularism for India and the World event. This two-day event will feature a lecture, public conversation, and a visual exhibit on the question of secularism in India and its impact on the world, particularly in the Euro-American public sphere. Featuring distinguished speaker and acknowledged expert on secularism in India Prof. Rajeev Bhargava (Center for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi) and Wright State University College of Liberal Arts faculty members, the event intends to foreground the recent political developments in India that continue to marginalize its religious minorities. In a world where many countries have difficulties accepting migrants and refugees, this event seeks to highlight the peculiar and critical global moment of crisis that today faces all nations: namely, how to accommodate differences in a world that is increasingly moving toward homogeneity of thought, practices, institutions, and politics. This two-day event also examines resources we could call upon to address our fundamental question of how best to live together. Could ancient political thought from one of our oldest civilizations provide an answer?
This event is free and open to the public. This event is made possible due to the generous support of Wright State University's Office of Latinx, Asian, and Native American Affairs, Collaborative Education, Leadership, and Innovation in the Arts, School of Public and International Affairs, and University's Honors Program.
