Dr China Halabi lunchtime lecture

Lunchtime Seminars

An informal lunchtime seminar series is held most Wednesdays of Full Term in the Combination Room, with complimentary coffee and biscuits.

Dr China Halabi lunchtime lecture

The series is designed to enable and encourage students and other members of Wolfson to speak in an informal setting about their research.  Participants can bring in their trays and have lunch during the talks, and we encourage friendly debate over coffee.

Seminar topics are invited across all academic disciplines. College members who are interested in presenting and or in helping the lunchtime team with the organisation, planning and chairing of sessions can email the current organisers.

There is always something for everyone at the LTS. To ensure a variety of topics we welcome speakers from within Wolfson including Fellows, Junior Research Fellows, Senior Members and CRAs.  Also don't be shy if  you are a PhD Candidate who would like to share your own dissertation 
subject - it is good practice for a PhD viva!

Humanities Lecture - India: An Idiosycratic Democracy

30/04/2019 at 17.45

India is widely regarded as the world’s largest democracy and, certainly, democratic practices within it are strongly developed with elections held at every level of government and, it often seems, every other week. Yet India’s social order remains marked by hierarchy, patriarchy and casteism and it is among the most economically unequal societies on earth. How do we explain this paradox and what do Indians themselves understand by the concept of democracy?
