Mahindra Humanities Seminar: Science, Religion, and Culture

   

The "Science, Religion and Culture" seminar, one of the Mahindra Humanities Seminars,  provides an opportunity to critically interrogate the categories of science, religion and culture and the sociocultural and discursive processes that create and transform these categories and the structures of authority attached to them. It sponsors conversations among scholars using anthropological, sociological, historical and philosophical methods with special interest in questions of race, gender and sexuality and different strategies of inclusion and exclusion that transform the production and consumption of knowledge. This seminar series will host several Harvard faculty members as well as scholars from the wider academy who will discuss general themes pertaining to the series focus on science, religion, and culture.
