Tuesday, May 24, 2011

This talk will reconstruct the initial phase of activism around Kannada and compare it with the contemporary phase seen in Bangalore, which has acquired new interlocutors with differing aspirations amidst a vastly changed linguistic milieu.  What are the possible consequences for the imaginations of community and democracy in Bangalore? The rest of the talk will address this question.
