Cultural Heritage and Rapid Urbanisation in India

Pushpa Arabindoo invited to Delhi workshop

Cultural Heritage and Rapid Urbanisation in India

On 2-4th March, Dr Pushpa Arabindoo was invited to participate in an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) workshop in Delhi on Cultural Heritage and Rapid Urbanisation in India.

The event was organised in partnership with the Indian Council for Historical Research (ICHR), with additional support from the British Library.

It brought together 40 experts from both countries to address an issue of growing importance, as India seeks to preserve and position its rich cultural history within the context of a rapidly changing urban landscape.

Pushpa drew from her research on middle-class activism in relation to heritage and preservation in Chennai, as well as her background as an academic-practitioner, to address current challenges in a critical, inter-disciplinary way.
