The incresing fluidity of boundaries between
different cultural forms, especially those that are visual in nature, has created a
situation which calls for an investigation of the idea of visual culture, both as a
concept that would account for the culture of visuality in contemporary societies, and as
an aegis that would enable a dialogue between the disciplines of the visible.
As a first step, it is proposed to invite a number
of scholars and practitioners to reflect on the idea from their own perspective.

Caste, Democracy and the
Indian Intellectual Tradition
Coordinator : Vivek Dhareshwar
Work is underway to frame a doctoral and
post-doctoral research program which will seek to develop a theory of the relationship
between caste and democracy that at the same time critically engages with and reconstructs
the pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial intellectual traditions of India. The program
is likely to become operational in 2002.
