AHRC Workshop on Cultural Heritage and Rapid Urbanisation in India

The AHRC, with the Indian Council for Historical Research and the British Library, invites expressions of interest to attend a workshop on cultural heritage and rapid urbanisation in India. The event will bring together academic experts from both countries to address an issue of growing importance as India seeks to preserve and position its rich cultural history within the context of an emerging urban landscape.

It will draw on a range of disciplinary perspectives including urban history, heritage, languages, the digital humanities and archaeology. The development of longer-term collaborations and impacts, including possible links to other Newton programmes, wider inter-disciplinary UK-India research forums and subsequent funding bids, is one of the key objectives of the workshop.
