India and China: Perceptions and Engagements

Perceptions and engagements have an iterative relationship, with each influencing the other, so that the dynamic is evolving all the time. This provides a rich field for research within and across several disciplines, wherein perceptions can be measured, explained and even altered. Some of the dimensions covered include film, theatre, literature, calligraphy, museology and art or civilisation, philosophy, psychology, linguistics, India/China diaspora, history, science, innovation, business, media, politics. The exploration of the boundaries of perceptions and engagements, as also their compositions and mechanics of operation, provide an opportunity for ICS to engage with the lay public in both countries, and to widen the awareness and depth of knowledge of people in each country about the other.
