Linnaeus University, Sweden will be celebrating a book launch for the book titled: ‘Research on Cultural Encounters and Representations at Linnaeus University’ edited by Kristina Myrvold and Soniya Billore on the 22nd of March.
Hearty congratulations from Nordic Centre in India (NCI)!
The book brings together and presents multidisciplinary research related to India at Linnaeus University in Sweden. With contributions by researchers working in different disciplines and from various theoretical perspectives, the book explores cultural encounters, developments, and events in historical and contemporary India, and how narratives about people and cultures in India have been presented and represented through European and Scandinavian colonial lenses.
The book launch will be preceded with a research seminar about “What’s in a Name? Race and the Science of Colonisation in Australia in 1800”, organized by Linnaeus University Centre for Concurrences in Colonial and Postcolonial Studies.
