Brown-India Seminar

Brown-India Seminar

Brown-India seminars are the centerpiece of the Initiative. Through this series of public lectures, the India Initiative facilitates a convergence of figures from across the lines of academia, civil society, literature, public policy, and journalism to contribute to the discourse on contemporary India.

The seminars featured on this page demonstrate the interdisciplinary approach of the Brown-India Initiative and  constitute a comprehensive archive of the series with links to video recording of the events when available.
