Transnational Configurations of Tamil Identities is an interdisciplinary Symposium to be conducted in tandem with a series of workshops that seek to develop and disseminate emerging research and explorations of Tamil identity in a transnational context.
The Symposium aims to examine the ways in which transnational Tamil identities have been documented historically and politically and performed culturally and artistically; and to explore the benefits and pitfalls of transnationalism in the face of the contradictions and limitations of nation states. The Tamil Studies Symposium and accompanying workshops are planned with the intention of bringing together students, community experts and international academics to mobilize knowledge for an innovative and culturally rich society with a global sensitivity.
The programme will be made available on this event page soon.
