In 1906, Dadabhai Naoroji (1825-1917) declared swaraj, or Indian self-government, as the goal of the Indian National Congress. This talk will examine how Naoroji developed the idea of swaraj during his five decades-long political and nationalist career, which included groundbreaking economic research on Indian poverty, engagement with emancipatory movements around the world, and becoming the first-ever Asian elected to the British Parliament. Naoroji’s swaraj, as we will see, was global in nature. It evolved from contact with European liberalism and socialism and, at the same time, had a significant influence on the growth of global anti-colonialism and antiracism.

Jacqueline Bhabha (Professor, Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health) will be in conversation with Neha J Hiranandani to discuss her book Girl Power: Indian Women Who Broke the Rules. The discussion will focus on the challenges young women still face when it comes to access to education and health while negotiating with the societal expectations. Keeping in with the theme of Neha Hiranandani’s Girl Power – a book about bringing forth the stories of ‘rebel women’ in India – it will ponder on the factors that contribute to the success of many who do break the mould, against the odds.

This presentation will show how residential caste-segregation is independent of city size, using the first-ever large-scale evidence of neighborhood-resolution data from 147 of the largest cities in contemporary India. Bharathi will discuss one of the central conundrums in Indian urbanism — the persistence of caste segregation across the country, and across cities of varying sizes. This finding punctures a hole in one of the central normative promises of India’s urbanization: the gradual withering of traditional caste-based segregation. The talk will provide further fine-grained evidence on the ghettoization of the most spatially marginalized groups in urban India: Muslims and Dalits.

How should societies identify and promote merit? Enabling all people to fulfill their full potential and ensuring that competent and capable leaders are selected to govern are central challenges for any society. Failure to meet these challenges can have enormous costs, for individuals and for societies as a whole. The richness of China’s historical experience and its distinctive current practices offer useful tools for reflection and comparative analysis. Does the case of China offer any lessons – positive or negative – for India to consider?

India’s coal industry is highly contested today. Between the immediacy of coal shortages, the transition to renewable energy, and air pollution problems, the long history of the coal industry and India’s deep economic and social dependence on the fuel gets lost in conversation. In this talk, Rohit will give a brief historical sketch of the Indian coal industry, and discuss some of the reasons why Coal India as both a company and a developmental actor has persisted, and is likely to persist in the near future. In particular, he will discuss the political and financial adaptations of the Indian coal industry since its nationalization in the early 1970s and some of the characteristics which differentiate it from other PSUs.
