Vidita Vaidya

How do we identify who is part of 'us' and who is the 'other'? What does biology have to tell us about this process? And how does it help us to imagine social worlds?

Across the globe we are increasingly seeing mass migrations of people for various reasons. This is coming in direct conflict with a shrinking sense of identity that is threatened by the nearness of 'difference'. It is a time when 'us' and 'them' have become powerful politics for those in power or seeking power. For many of us, this is also a confusing time, when the world is churning but we cannot see where it is going. One of the most powerful actions we can take at moments like this is to come together for collective contemplation - an effort to understand combined with an effort to imagine possibilities.

Mumbai Local is delighted to invite Vidita Vaidya - neuroscientist and professor - to Mumbai Local once again. This time, she will share what neuroscience has to say about behavior, morality, and their relationship to the social constructs we live with. Neuroscience is a fascinating field of inquiry that, amongst other things, explores how different combinations of our biology and environment make us behave. It is a field that gives us insight into why we do what we do, and also, crucially, how we can do differently.

Look forward to an eye-opening evening with science, filled with illustrations from lab experiments, surprising findings, and fascinating insights. Expect to be filled with questions and contemplation, and to engage in a thought-provoking collective conversation.

See you on Friday, 15th September, 5:30 pm at Kitab Khana. And a gentle reminder - do please send this email on to at least 5 of your friends who would be interested - the more people who join us the merrier.
