Religion, Society and Women:
Perspectives from India
The relationship between religion, society and women has been widely studied in the Indian context. But these studies are often isolated in nature, especially with reference to time. As a result, works on the modern period rarely benefit from insights gained through studies on early historical, early medieval, medieval or early modern periods, and vice versa. There is hardly a dialogue among scholars working on different time periods in Indian history about the changing nature of the relationship between religion, society and women, although perspectives for each period have been empirically rich and theoretically refined. The national conference on Religion, Society and Women seeks to provide a platform for such a dialogue and exchange of ideas.
