New Book on Citizenship

Apr 26, 2013

"Citizenship as Cultural Flow" is a new book edited by Subrata K. Mitra. Adressing the subject of citizen making, it analyses the roots of citizenship in India and compares the development with the European Union. The book is another volumne of the Cluster’s book series "Transcultural Research – Heidelberg Studies on Asia and Europe in a Global Context".

The book addresses the very topical subject of citizen making. By delving into a range of sources - among them survey questions, historical documents, political theory, architectural design, and public policy - the book provides a unique analysis of when and why citizenship has taken root in India. Each chapter highlights the constant innovation of citizenship that has occurred in India's legal, political, social, economic and aesthetic arrangements as well as providing the basis for comparative analysis across South Asian cases and the European Union.

The book "Citizenship as Cultural Flow" - 283 pages - has been published in early 2013 by the science book publishing company Springer as part of the Cluster’s book series "Transcultural Research – Heidelberg Studies on Asia and Europe in a Global Context". The series presents peer-reviewed books by members of the Cluster as well as scholars from both historical and empirical disciplines who are working on new emerging fields that cross existing disciplinary boundaries.

Subrata K. Mitra is Professor of Political Science and Head of the Department of Political Science at the South Asia Institute of Heidelberg University. He coordinated the research project A1 "Citizenship as Conceptual Flow: Asia in a Comparative Perspective" at the Cluster.
