Fugitive words: India’s political ideas in its vernaculars

The 'Fugitive words: India’s political ideas in its vernaculars' seminar series analyses the conceptual vocabulary of India’s political life across seventeen Indian languages.

The series is part of the 'India's politics in its vernaculars' project, a major international collaboration involving twenty-four scholars of Indian culture, politics and languages.

About the project

The 'India's politics in its vernaculars' project not only captures the most significant features of political language use across the country, but also builds a theoretical vocabulary for analysing Indian politics. This is not in the exogenous terms of Western Political Theory, but in its own terms – using concepts through which Indian political actors themselves conduct and reflect on their politics.
