Tagore and Geheeb - the Myth of a friendship

 

Elijah Horn

IAAW, HU Berlin / Universität Hildesheim

 

In his 2011 "Eros & Herschaft", Jürgen Oelkers analyses strategies of power and (sexual) violence among representatives of German Reformpädagogik (new education), one of them being Paul Geheeb, the founder of the Odenwaldschule. From my analyses of the reception of India and its cultural tradition at the Odenwaldschule during the 1920s and 30s, I argue that Geheeb strategically used the personal contact to a number of Indians for positioning his institut on the competitive market of private schools. I will show that these strategies worked out and function until today: In the very same work, Oelkers reports on the friendship of Rabindranath Tagore and Paul Geheeb. Referring to original documents, their relationship should rather not be classified as such.

 

                                                                                                                                                                            An Indian Spring versus an Arab Autumn?

The impact of global networks of political Islamism between the Arab World and India

 

Dr. Julten Abdelhalim

 IAAW, HU Berlin    

                                                    

This presentation tackles my post-doctoral project concerning the dynamics of migration flows from Kerala to the Persian Gulf and their impact on the consolidation of revivalist Islamist politics. The intricate methods with which migration has created parallel organizations in the Gulf attracting moral and financial support of both the relatively wealthier Non Resident Indians and Egyptians is the impetus of these dynamics to be studied, in addition to the different manifestations of  the new political setups in the Arab World.

                                                                                  

 

Women's Rights Activism

and the Supreme Court in India

 

Tanja Herklotz

IAAW, HU Berlin

 

This interdisciplinary PhD Project seeks to answer the question to which degree the Indian women's movement has influenced Indian Supreme Court decisions regarding the religious "personal laws." It shows that the Indian women's movement, which has long argued that the various religious customary family laws are discriminatory against women, has functioned as a "support structure" in order to push for a judicial re-interpretation of religious laws. Due to its own fragmentation and the lack of a uniform and coherent voice it has, however, not realised this aim to its full potential.

 

                                                                                                                                                                            Democracy and Inequality:

Dynamics of Indian Elites

 

Suraj Beri

JNU, New Delhi / IAAW, HU Berlin

 

Social theory has been concerned with the dynamics of social inequalities. One of the major concept-ualizations, to make sense of processes of inequalities, has been of the elite studies. Studies on elites in India have focused on certain sections of elites such as political elites, intellectual elites and also business elites. This work aims to study empirically the dynamics between these various elites in the context of small town. On the one hand, it focuses on institutional context and material characteristics i.e. organizational capacity, structural factors of family, nature of the power exercised etc., while on the other it also brings the significance of symbolic aspects of classification and their vision of social world.

Fotoausstellung: Framing Muslims

10 Fotografen | 10 Länder | 20 Bilder

Ein Bild sagt mehr als tausend Worte, heißt es, und doch vergessen wir oft, dass wir mit Fotos nicht nur Realitäten abbilden, sondern diese auch schaffen. Im Akt des Fotografierens machen wir uns ein Bild von der Welt. In jeder Aufnahme wird auch etwas ausgeblendet.

Was als „muslimisch“ klassifiziert wird ist häufig gottesfürchtig, überwiegend männlich und uneingeschränkt traditionell. Ausnahmen bestätigen entweder die Regel oder reduzieren ihre Motive auf Formen des Protests und der Grenzüberschreitung. Das Ziel dieser ethnographischen Fotoausstellung ist es, alltägliche, banale, zum Teil unterrepräsentierte Aspekte des Lebens in islamisch geprägten Gesellschaften einzubeziehen. Die Fotografien zeigen die Komplexität alltäglicher Erfahrungen: konfliktträchtige Gebiete werden Orten gegenübergestellt, an denen das Gebet und das Bedürfnis nach Vergnügen und einfachen Freuden Hand in Hand gehen. Hinzu kommen Bilder von muslimischen Gemeinschaften im Dialog mit der nichtmuslimischen Mehrheit und von Situationen, in denen das Muslim-Sein der Dargestellten gegenüber ihrem Mensch-Sein in den Hintergrund tritt.

Das Projekt „framing muslims“ dokumentiert zugleich das breite Spektrum an regionalen und kulturellen Schwerpunkten, die die Vielfalt der Forschungsprojekte an der Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies ausmacht.

Call for Presentations : "Theory matters!?"

In this workshop, we want to address the question of modernity as one of the most decisive theoretical challenges for the humanities until date. Critically discussed since decades, terminologies and contextualization remain hazy. Focusing on South Asia as a crucial point of reference for the formation of European modernity and its claims, we want to examine the impact of altering theories of modernity for the academic as well as the public/political sphere.

Format

Diverging from our usual format, this workshop will open with short introductory presentations by the two moderators, after which everyone attending is invited to prepare a 3-5 min presentation, addressing one or more of the following questions:

  • One modernity or many? How do we define and where do we locate modernity?
  • Is there a difference between the content and the form of modernity?
  • Do we (still) need one or more theories of modernity?
  • Does the theory of modernity matter for its practice?
  • Does 'the' modernity have an agency?
  • What is the relationship critique of society and the critique of modernity?
  • Does an up-to-date academic contribution require the engagement with modernity?
  • How do we deal with modernity's discontents?
  • Is 'classical' modernity theory a European / German enterprise?
  • Where is the place for a critical academic today?
  • Does / in how far does gender matter?

 

Speakers will have the chance to intervene with their contributions at any time in the workshop. A speakers' list will be moderated. All those interested are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion (no registration required unless you are preparing a short presentation).

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin | Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences | Department of Asian and African Studies | Regional Departments | South Asian Studies | Events | Archives | Waterspace, Empire and Mobility in Southeastern Asia, IAAW-Workshop-1, Friday, June 14, 2013

Waterspace, Empire and Mobility in Southeastern Asia, IAAW-Workshop-1, Friday, June 14, 2013

You are cordially invited to the Workshop 'Waterspace, Empire and Mobility in Southeastern Asia' which will take place on the 14th June, 2013, Invalidenstraße 118, Room 217, 14-20h.

The recent spell of economic growth in India, China and countries across Southeastern Asia, have mostly impacted the Himalayan-Tibetan watershed. Thousands of large and smaller dams, completed or projected, on the Brahmaputra, Irrawaddy, Salwin, Mekong and Yangtze, among others, are set to alter the waterspace of the region in an unprecedented manner. Yet just about half of the world’s poor population depend either directly or indirectly on this watershed.
How do historians and social scientists grapple the qustion of maintaining ecological value of the waterspace amid the desire for ecnomic growth in Asia? This broader question would be discussed in this workship at the Institut für Asien- und Afrikawissenschaften at Humboldt-Universität Berlin. The IAAW seems to be a fitting place to engage this question as its different departments represent scholars of Central Asia, South Asia and Southeast Asia where this watershed touches.


In this broader context and platform, the workshop would seek to examine trans-regional forces of the watersapce. In particular, it will study the river as a force of environmental, economic and cultural integration in the territories spanning Bangladesh, India (Northeastern provinces), Myanmar, China (Yunnan) and Southeastern Tibet as well as mainland Southeast Asia.
So far policy-makers, environmentalists and civil society activists have mostly based their approach to rivers on the externalities of the impact of interventions into the river systems, leaving the question of the river as a force in itself less focused. It may be argued that the interactions and exchanges of people, commodities and ideas around the watersapce of this region have given rise to a distinctive integrative force which must be taken seriously. Through such attempt to restore the value of the river as an integrative force, this workshop will seek to recover the ‘transnational self’ of the river. In doing so, the workshop aims to highlight the aspects of ecological “commons” as inherent in these rivers against the development practices that are spatially framed within the bounded space of the postcolonial nation-state.

  • Klara Feldes: The Polavaram Dam in Andhra Pradesh: a Project of “Modernity”
