India as a superpower

Posted on Wednesday, March 31, 2010

4214-AC-INDIAWe increasingly hear of a coming “Asian century” that will be dominated by the economic strength and political power of countries like India. But some, given the deep fault-lines within Indian society, politics, economics, and culture, suggest that talk of Indian superstardom is highly premature.

On April 7, McGill’s Institute for the Study of International Development in partnership with the International Development Research Centre and the Dean of Arts Development Fund, will welcome Dr. Ramachandra Guha for a free public lecture, Ten Reasons Why India Will Not and Must Not Become a Superpower.

Named one of the fifty most influential people in India, Dr. Guha is a historian and biographer based in Bangalore.

Ten Reasons Why India Will Not and Must Not Become a Superpower, April 7, 5:30 p.m.; McGill Faculty Club Ballroom, 3450 McTavish St. For more information contact 514-398 1894 or visit www.mcgill.ca/arts.
