Long Abstract

In this panel we explore sites, debates and practices through which moral and ethical dispositions in South Asia are produced, debated, cultivated or subverted in actual engagements between social actors. We are also interested in investigating how people navigate through complex, contradictory and fragmented moral/ethical orientations, negotiating between the latter and the contingencies of everyday life. The panel will address practices and debates emerging in a variety of contexts such as, for instance, those concerning sexuality and kinship, labour and entrepreneurship, education and consumption, public and political life, youth cultures and relations between generations, community and religion.
