Educated Subjectivity and Social Haunting in North India
Akanksha will show in her paper entitled ‘Educated Subjectivity and Social Haunting in North India’ the ways in which a specific ‘educated subjectivity’ is being developed and performed in north India. This subjectivity differs substantially from the imagined changes in personhood that tertiary education is supposed to bring about. She will then examine some of the political consequences of what local actors perceive as a failure of education.
