Mark your calendars and spread the word! The 2014 Educators for Teaching India (EFTI) conference theme will be Women in India: Negotiating Tradition and Modernity . The conference will take place on April 4, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm at Harvard University. This year’s conference will examine the status of women in India through multiple lenses: religion, history, politics and current events, including the recent Supreme Court ruling that sentenced four men to death for the gang-raping of a New Delhi woman.
EFTI is proud to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Harleen Singh, Associate Professor of Literature and Women’s and Gender Studies at Brandeis University and author of the forthcoming The Public Life of Lakshmi Bai, Rani of Jhansi: Gender, History, and Fable in India 1 ed. (Cambridge University Press, 2013). Many of you will remember Professor Singh from her dynamic and engaging workshop on gender at our 2013 conference.
Please register today and help us spread the word. Registration and conference information can be found on our website: http://teachingindia.org/. We have also attached a poster announcement for the conference and encourage you to share it with colleagues and friends. If you would like to attend the conference but work for an institution that does not provide financial support for professional development please contact us at email@example.com.
All the best and look forward to seeing many of you on April 4th.
