International Conference Shantiniketan Hellerau - Universalist Education in the Pedagogic Province



In the 19th century, urbanization and industrialization changed the globe dramatically and were feared by many. The universalist education movement arose as a countercultural reaction to these developments. Idealists strove to create a new world and educate the “new man.” Shantiniketan and Hellerau paradigmatically represent the urge to counteract the drastic changes the world underwent back then. Initiated by the Deutsch-Indische Gesellschaft e.V. and the Department for South Asia Studies of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
