Dr Talat Ahmed - Lessons from a Great Soul

HCA EIBF logo 2019

The life and legacy of Mohandas Gandhi is under scrutiny in an era which seems, rightly or wrongly, to abhor contradiction. Talat Ahmed is co-director of the Centre for South Asian Studies at the University of Edinburgh. In 'Mohandas Gandhi: Experiments in Civil Disobedience', she asks: was Gandhi's non-violent approach as successful as we imagine, and how useful might it be in repairing rifts today? A captivating discussion awaits.

Tickets are £8.00, £6.00, available from the EIBF website link.


Read an interview with Dr Ahmed.
