Wendy Doniger in Conversation with Leela Gandhi on The Hindus: An Alternative History

Wendy Doniger's The Hindus: An Alternative HIstory, recently halted publication in India as a result of a lawsuit that was settled out of court by the publisher, Penguin Books India. The suit was banned on Section 295A in The Indian Penal Code.

Here in Hyde Park, at The Seminary Bookstore, we wish to support Professor Doniger and show our appreciation of her willingness to discuss this seminal work despite legal action in India and the overwhelming media response. Leela Gandhi will act as interlocutor for the event.

Co-sponsored by The Department of South Asian Languages and Civilizations and the Committee on Southern Asian Studies.

Reception to follow the conversation.
