About the event
This collection of essays traces the ascendance of Hindu nationalism in contemporary India. The contributors explore how Hindutva ideology has permeated the state apparatus and formal institutions, and how Hindutva activists exert control over civil society via vigilante groups, cultural policing and violence. The panel will unpack the issues raised in this book and debate the changing face of Indian identity.
