COLONIAL RULE AND THE REFRAMING
OF SOCIETY AND RELIGION
IN THE BOMBAY PRESIDENCY : THE CASE OF THE SINDHIS
By Michel Boivin
In India, the impact of colonization on the framing of knowledge, including religious beliefs, has not been fully investigated yet. Traditional religious beliefs were submitted to new interpretations. This presentation by Michel Boivin will focus on the case study of the Sindhis. Michel Boivin is the Director of Research at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), and Director Elect of the Centre for Indian and South Asian Studies. He is Professor of Historical Anthropology of South Asian societies and cultures at the Advanced School for Social Sciences (EHESS) in Paris where he supervises a number of MPhil and PhD students.
