Ashis Nandy Gets Hans Killian Award 2019

The Centre is delighted to announce that Ashis Nandy has been chosen as recipient of the Hans-Kilian-Prize for 2019. He was once Director of the Centre and currently an Honorary Fellow of the CSDS.

Ashis Nandy has addressed two diametrically opposite, and oscillating domains of social existence—human potentialities and human destructiveness. Some of his books are At the Edge of Psychology, Alternative Sciences, The Intimate Enemy, The Illegitimacy of Nationalism, Creating a Nationality, The Tao of Cricket, The Savage Freud and Other Essays on Possible and Retrievable Selves, An Ambiguous Journey to the City, The Romance of the State, Time Treks, and Time Warps. Among his edited books are The Secret Politics of Our Desires, The Future of Knowledge and Culture: A Twenty-First Century Dictionary (with Vinay Lal), and Science, Hegemony and Violence.

The Hans-Kilian-Prize adds to many awards received by him including the Fukuoka Prize in 2007.
