The annual ‘Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan Memorial Lecture’ of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study (IIAS), Shimla, was conducted at the Centre for Development Studies (CDS) here the other day.

The lecture, instituted in the name of the ‘philosopher President’ of India, was delivered by Mary E John, senior fellow and professor at the Centre for Women’s Development Studies, New Delhi.

Speaking on ‘Feminist Concepts in Time and Space: Perspectives from India’, Mary took the audience through a history of thoughts from the 19th century to the present.

“There have been three main epistemes or grids of intelligibility in the history of ‘women’ and ‘feminism’ in India- the colonial, the national and the post-colonial,” she said.

She has been working in the fields of women’s studies and feminist politics for many years.
