SIAS hosts a conversation with historian Dr.Faisal Devji

University of Oxford historian, Dr Faisal Devji, shared his approach to the life and philosophy of Gandhi. Exploring a key conundrum in Gandhi's thought, the intimate connection of both violence and nonviolence to goodness, Dr Devji foregrounded the continuing relevance of Gandhi's thinking in the context of modern terrorism.

The session saw a diverse Indian and international audience who engaged in a discussion that straddled history, politics, philosophy, literature, and social science.

Skilfully moderated by Dr Bishnu Mohapatra, Dean - School of Interwoven Arts and Sciences (SIAS), and Mukund Padmanabhan, Visiting Professor of Practice, the session highlighted the far-reaching consequences of Dr Devji's work across disciplines, truly reflecting the spirit of interwoven learning at Krea University
