This book seeks to capture illustratively some of the ongoing intellectual and institutional practices in sociological teaching and research in the current context of globalization. It attempts to both document and theorize the ongoing changes. The central contention here is that an earlier nationalist vision of education that informed much of social science practice in independent India is challenged from two very different sources: radical and local social movements on the one hand; and the imperatives of global capital on the other hand. It further argues that sociology in India needs to engage at once with its routine, everyday banal practices and its unique theoretical possibilities which allow for an active involvement in broader questions about the role of social sciences.
