In this talk Dr. Dhareshwar raises the question of why decolonizing the social sciences has not figured as an explicit agenda in India. Although there have been nativisms and critiques of Eurocentrism , he will try to show that they cannot be considered as articulating the agenda of decolonizing the social sciences. Arguing how the program of decolonizing the social sciences is a necessary and urgent task for Indian intellectuals, he outlines some of the serious theoretical issues that such a task needs to confront.
