Rethinking Cultural Heritage: Indo-Japan Dialogue in a Globalising World Order

16 Aug 2018

Venue: Conference Room II, IIC
Time: 10:00 AM

The India International and Institute of Chinese Studies are organizing a two-day seminar on Rethinking Cultural Heritage: Indo-Japan Dialogue in a Globalising World Order on 16th and 17th August 2018.  The objective is to focus on the relatively under-researched theme of locating Indo-Japanese dialogue through the prism of the 19th and early 20th century when India was under colonial rule and Japan was trying to end its isolation in the Meiji period (1868 – 1912). The starting point of this dialogue is the 1893 World Parliament of Religions, where Buddhism was represented by both India and Japan.   

The seminar will be inaugurated by HE Ambassador Kenji Hiramatsu, Embassy of Japan on Thursday, 16th August at 10 am in Conference Room II  and the session chaired by Dr. Kapila Vatsyayan, Life Trustee of IIC.  

The coordinator of the seminar is Professor Himanshu Prabha Ray, a distinguished historian and presently Honorary Professor, Distant Worlds Programme, Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich.
