17.11. Vortrag von Dr. Parul Bhandari (RePLITO Visiting Fellow): "In Togetherness and as Apart: Love, Marriage and Family in Contemporary India"

This lecture discusses how urban middle class Indians make sense of intimacies and love through the lens of being ‘together’, both as cohabitation and as a concept (of coupledom). In so doing, the focus will be to understand how love, and negotiations around being a couple, provide a sense of identity and enable self-realisation.
