The Cyborg In Globalizing India!
The Munk School of Global Affairs is presenting an Asian Institute PhD Seminar Series, “The Cyborg in Globalizing India: Technology, Community, and Revolution in Indra Sinha’s Animal’s People and Altaf Tyrewala’s Englishhh ©” on February 25, 2016. The seminar will be held from 10AM-12PM at 108N, North House, Munk School of Global Affairs.
This presentation focuses on technology, particularly in the form of machines and more abstract and nebulous technologies, to map the formation of cyborg and “sahiborg” subjectivities in an era of rapidly changing and ever-improving modes of communication. Join fifth-year doctoral student Stephanie Southmayd as she discusses John Tomlinson’s ideas on technologies bringing us closer together and further apart that fosters a greater sense of global solidarity and “connectivity,” and on setting out battle lines for revolutionary new Indian movements: between the international rich and poor, in Sinha’s work, and Global North and South, in Tyrewala’s.
