The 5-year conference cluster Rethinking Religion in India forms an integrated whole, with each conference building on the previous one. Each year the issues and problems to be addressed will get delineated more sharply. In between conferences, intermediary activities take place which feed into the formulation of the subsequent conference themes and questions (more details about our activities).
To achieve the overall objective of developing a new paradigm for the study of religion in India, a conference format with distinct conference modules and recurring conference themes will be adopted. Each module will approach the ten themes and questions from different angles: (1) Platform Sessions; (2) Roundtable Sessions; (3) Parallel Paper Sessions; (4) "How to...?" Workshops.
