Religious Change in 19th Century India,” will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 31, in the Shepardson College Room on the fourth floor of Slayter Hall (200 Ridge Road). The Global Studies Seminar lecture by John Cort, professor of religion and director of the International Studies Program at Denison University, is free and open to the public.
The nineteenth century exposed Indian intellectuals to new concepts of “history,” which they employed in debates about icons, which had been ongoing for centuries. Cort will look at a series of these debates about icons and icon worship in India during the nineteenth century, and how these arguments changed during the course of the century.
