Sunday, 16 May 2021 | PNS | Dehradun

An international symposium titled ‘History of Ideas: Latin America and India in 20th Century’ was organised by the Department of Spanish Studies, School of Languages, Doon University on Saturday. The event was organised virtually and was attended by more than 100 participants belonging to various national and international institutions from all over the world.

Delivering the welcome address, the vice chancellor of Doon University, Surekha Dangwal elaborated on the need to look at such connections that may not be connected geographically but perhaps intellectually, especially in times of a surging pandemic to draw inspirations from each other.

The director of the Institute of Social Sciences, New Delhi, Ash Narain Roy delivered a lecture on Latin American experience in 20th Century with regard to internationalism, pink tide and indigenous epistemologies like the idea of Buen Vivir. The second speaker, Professor Minni Sawhney from GRS, University of Delhi elaborated on Octavio Paz’s work on India and drew connections with his studies on Claude Levi Strauss and Nagarjuna’s Madhyamika philosophy.
