Nov 2021: Monsoon Ashoka Philosophy Festival


On November 27, 2021, the department of Philosophy held its first Monsoon Ashoka Philosophy Festival. The idea behind this event was to showcase the research currently conducted by various faculty members at Ashoka’s Philosophy within the University and beyond. Talks were given by Prof. Dmitry Shevchenko (visiting faculty), Prof. Kathleen Harbin, Prof. Raja Rosenhagen, and Prof. Eric Snyder. Each talk was complemented by a commentary and followed by a Q&A period. Comments were offered by Prof. Alex Watson, Prof. Aditi Chaturvedi (former Ashokan, now Azim Premji University), Prof. Danny Weltman and Prof. Sharon Berry. The Festival was conducted via zoom and well-attended by participants from Ashoka and all over India.
