About the Project

Project term: April, 2020–March, 2023

We have been witnessing an increasing academic interest in “emotions”. In the background of this interest, there is the common acknowledgement that conventional approaches based on “reason” or “dialogue” are not enough to understand some phenomenon such as populist politics and hate speeches. This joint research project aims at rethinking the social changes /social movements in contemporary South Asia from the perspective of “emotions”, and at the same time explores the historical changes of the “emotion” itself. Partition, populist politics of the Hindu Right, ethnic movements and violence, counter-movements against caste/gender order and so on shall be examined.
