Matthew Rahaim, local author and University of Minnesota professor, will discuss his book Musicking Bodies: Gesture and Voice in Hindustani Music on Thursday, November 29 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis.

Indian classical music is performed with extensive physical motions and gestures that are both disciplined and spontaneous; singers implicitly theorize melody as motion, construct melodic objects, and transmit musical traditions. These gestures embody a special kind of melodic knowledge that results in lineages of vocalists who not only sound similar, but also engage with music kinesthetically according to similar aesthetic and ethical ideals. Musicking Bodies investigates the ways in which hand gestures are used to manifest melody and transmit culture, and is an important contribution to the field of ethnomusicology.

Rahaim will sign copies of his book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public.

Sainath Lecture - India in the Age of Inequality: Farm crisis, food crisis & the media

India in the Age of Inequality:

Farm crisis, food crisis & the media

by P. Sainath

Date: 11/15/2012
Time: 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: 1210 Heller Hall
Series: ICGC Distinguished Public Lecture

While India has caught the attention of the world with it's growth rates and generation of wealth these past two decades, a much less-told side of the story remains: levels of inequality are higher than at any time since the days of the British Raj. The problems of hunger and deprivation are sharp and alarming. Distress migrations out of the countryside have risen dramatically. And the country is still to come out of its worst agrarian crisis since the event of the Green revolution. A lot of these problems and crises are driven not by natural calamity, but by policies that favor a very small segment of the population.

P. Sainath is Rural Affairs Editor, The Hindu and the McGraw Professor in Writing at Princeton University. In addition, he wrote the book, Everybody loves a good drought: stories from India's poorest districts.

Screening of Jai Bhim Comrade by Anand Patwardhan

Screening of Jai Bhim Comrade

by Anand Patwardhan,

Visiting Humphrey Professor

Macalester College

Date: Monday, November 12, 2012
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: John B. Davis Lecture Hall in the campus center at Macalester College
Open to the public.

Synopsis: For thousands of years India's Dalits were abhorred as "untouchables" denied education and treated as bonded labour. By 1923 Bhimrao Ambedkar broke the taboo, won doctorates abroad and fought for the emancipation of his people. He drafted India's Constitution, led his followers to discard Hinduism for Buddhism. His legend still spreads through poetry and song. In 1997 a statue of Dr. Ambedkar in a Dalit colony in Mumbai was desecrated with footwear. As angry residents gathered, police opened fire killing 10. Vilas Ghogre, a leftist poet, hung himself in protest. 'Jai Bhim Comrade' shot over 14 years, follows the poetry and music of people like Vilas and marks a subaltern tradition of reason that from the days of the Buddha, has fought superstition and religious bigotry.

Talk by Richa Nagar, November 2

"Storytelling and Co-authorship in Feminist Alliance Work:

Reflections From a Journey"

Talk by Richa Nagar

Professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies

University of Minnesota

Date: 11/02/2012
Time: 1:00 - 2:15 PM
Location: 400 Ford Hall

If all writing is fundamentally tied to the production of meanings and
texts, then feminist research that blurs the borders of academia and
activism is necessarily about the labor and politics of mobilizing
experience for particular ends. Co-authoring stories is a chief tool
by which feminists working in alliances across borders mobilize
experience to write against relations of power that produce social
violence, and to imagine and enact their own visions and ethics of
social change. Such work demands a serious engagement with the
complexities of identity, representation, and political imagination as
well as a rethinking of the assumptions and possibilities associated
with engagement and expertise. This presentation draws upon 16 years
of partnership with activists in India and with academic co-authors in
the US to reflect on how story telling across social, geographical,
and institutional borders can enhance critical engagement with
questions of violence and struggles for social change, while also
troubling dominant discourses and methodologies inside and outside of
the academy. In offering six "truths" of alliance work, this talk
reflects on the labor process, assumptions, possibilities, and risks
associated with co-authorship as a tool for mobilizing intellectual
spaces in which stories from multiple locations in an alliance can
speak with one another and evolve into more nuanced critical

Richa Nagar is Professor of Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies at

"The Long 1980s" conference (New Delhi): registration open

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the American Institute of Indian Studies, we invite you to join us on December 21-22, 2012 in Delhi to discuss The Long 1980s: Recovering a 'Lost Decade.'

Book-ended by the dramatic historical markers of the Emergency on the one hand and economic liberalization and the Mandal and Masjid controversies on the other, the period that we consciously choose to delineate here as "the long 1980s" is typically dismissed as an era of economic stagnation and political authoritarianism. And yet, in many ways, the 1980s was a period of extraordinary importance. In areas as distinct as the visual arts, classical and popular music, cultural patronage, the writing of national histories, and print and audio-visual media, the 1980s was an era of consolidation and productive re-alignment. Furthermore, these years witnessed a critical deepening of scholarship in the interpretive sciences on these realms both in the Indian academy and around the world. Propelled by this realization, we seek to bring together scholars from across the humanities and social sciences to pursue three interlocking projects: (1) to identify what we are calling the long 1980s as a pivotal turning point in India's twentieth-century history; (2) to take stock of the scholarship on the areas we have identified as historically constitutive of that period; and (3) to connect studies of cultural production with those of political practice and political economy.

The first of three conferences, "The Long 1980s: Recovering a 'Lost Decade'" is being organized by Sumathi Ramaswamy of Duke University, Karin Zitzewitz of Michigan State University, Rebecca Brown at Johns Hopkins University and Arvind Rajagopal of New York University and will be held at the India International Centre in New Delhi December 21-22, 2012.

This conference is open to the public without charge, but registration is required. For more information and to register, please go to http://thelong1980s.wordpress.com/

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the American Institute of Indian Studies will be hosting three two-day conferences that would provide an opportunity for U.S. based scholars to interact with scholars at the Indian institutions that provide research affiliations for AIIS fellows. These conferences will be funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs through the Council of American Overseas Research Centers. Faculty from AIIS member colleges and universities were invited to submit proposals for the conferences to be held at the AIIS centers in Gurgaon and New Delhi between December 2012 and January 2014. The purpose of the initiative is to showcase, in India, AIIS's deep commitment to India-focused research and to provide an opportunity for dialogue between U.S.-based and India-based scholars. By involving scholars at institutions with which AIIS fellows and faculty members affiliate, AIIS would like to acknowledge the important role of Indian institutions and scholars in hosting AIIS researchers, and to deepen and strengthen relationships between AIIS member institutions and affiliate Indian institutions.
The three conferences will be:
The Long 1980s: Recovering a 'Lost Decade' is being organized by Sumathi Ramaswamy of Duke University, Karin Zitzewitz of Michigan State University, Rebecca Brown at Johns Hopkins University and Arvind Rajagopal of New York University and will be held in December 2012.
Regions and Regionalism in India: Past Cases and Present Opportunities is being organized by Benjamin Cohen of the University of Utah and Sumit Ganguly of Indiana University and will be held in the summer of 2013.
Political Imaginaries: Rethinking India's Twentieth Century is being organized by Manu Goswami of New York University and Mrinalini Sinha of the University of Michigan and will be held in December 2013.

Elder Prize in the Indian Social Sciences".
