Announcement: Indic Academy Is Organising A Webinar Tomorrow With Koenraad Elst, Historian And Orientalist
Indic Academy is organising its fifth webinar in the Retrospective-Prospective series conducted by Srinivas Udumudi from March this year.
This edition features Koenraad Elst, a well known Historian and Orientalist.
Koenraad's Elst is an important scholar who belongs to the Voice of India school of thought, if one may characterise his work in that fashion.
His exemplary work on Indian history is an important contribution to the modern Hindu Revival movement.
He has published more than 30 books in a wide range of subjects from Aryan Invasion Theory to Hindutva politics.
His books like Decolonizing the Hindu Mind, Ideological Development of Hindu Revivalism, The Saffron Swastika, The Notion of 'Hindu Fascism' and Negationism in India: Concealing the Record of Islam are considered to have had a major impact on modern intellectual history.
Indic Academy welcomes all to a discussion with Koenraad Elst at this webinar. A panel of interlocutors will conduct a dialogue with him on his decades of work.
The webinar will be held on Sunday, 1 November, 2020.
