Abstract

Thinking Through Difference: South Asian Political Thought How is tolerance, and relatedly, difference understood, declared and accommodated in political thought in Asia, Africa and the Middle East? In recent times, liberal multiculturalism has been the dominant model for dealing with difference in political theory. Yet, few scholars have attempted the empirical and theoretical work which might take us beyond the model of liberal tolerance. This panel would engage with alternative modes through which difference has been declared, institutionalized, practiced, or theorized in historically marginalized traditions of thought and practice.
