'Indian Psychology: Emerging Perspectives' - Refresher Course at Delhi University

22 Nov 2010 - 25 Nov 2010
Academic Research Centre Building, Opposite S.G.T.B. Khalsa College, Patel Chest Marg, University of Delhi, Delhi-110007

The Kabir Project has been invited to design and facilitate a four-day component in a Refresher Course on the theme ‘Indian Psychology: Emerging Perspectives’ organized by the Department of Psychology, University of Delhi. Resource persons include Shabnam Virmani, Jyoti Sahi (http://jyotiartashram.blogspot.com/), Prahlad Singh Tipanya, Kalpana Tanwar, Apoorvanand, and Chintan Girish Modi.

Co-ordinated by Dr. Suneet Varma, this course aims to acquaint young college and university teachers with new developments in the discipline. It proceeds from the understanding that the curriculum of academic psychology in India has been largely Euro-American in character and that it needs to draw insights from the ideas and practices developed by spiritual traditions in the Indian sub-continent over thousands of years.

The Kabir Project’s programme will consist of film screenings, talks, discussions, and a music performance by Malwi folk singer Prahlad Tipanya. Interested individuals from within the academic world and outside are welcome to attend with prior registration. The schedule of the entire refresher course running from Nov. 22 to Dec. 11 can be obtained by emailing forsuneet@gmail.com
