Discussion Series on
Faith and Politics
at Pennamma Bhavanam

In the contemporary world, the deabte on the political dimension of faith remains as a key issue, especially in the context of the neo liberal world order and its construction of the terrorism discourse. The question of faith is also important in the context of the fresh insights on the secularism/nationalism discourse.

In this context, we would like to initiate fresh debate on the theme through a series of sessions.
The details of the Sessions are given below:
