The Humanities in India as Pluralist Pedagogy

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This long essay charts a vision of Humanities education in terms of global and social responsibilities. Positioned at the intersections of theory and practice, knowledge and experience, and teaching and learning, the author draws on social, historical and personal narratives to address numerous issues raised by colonial and postcolonial inequalities. The idea of pluralist pedagogy emerges as the pivot across which different forms of learning, communication and interpretation acquire mutual significance.
