Indian Democracy in Motion

Housed in Ashoka University, an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research university with a focus on liberal arts, this seminar will cover how the Indian democratic experience is unsettling identities, unleashing new forms of mobilization and transforming the meaning of citizenship as Indians experience it.


The Global Seminar in India for summer 2020 has been cancelled due to the evolving global health emergency caused by the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

PIIRS adheres to the Princeton University policy, which currently prohibits university-sponsored travel to India. Please see this link for more information.

We extend our thanks to the students who have already applied to the program, and look forward to resuming the Global Seminars program in 2021.
