The Xavier Centre of Historical Research (XCHR) has arrived at its 100th public lecture in its flagship programme entitled History Hour. This volume captures the scholarly curiosity of its authors, as well as the evolving moods of the people of Goa. The selected lectures illustrate diverse voices and perspectives on Goa.
The authors in this anthology attempt to look at the world from a Goan point of view while simultaneously looking at Goa from outside. Thus Goa is made the window through which to gaze outwards, while, at the same time, permitting the ‘outsider’ to penetrate into Goa’s horizons.
The speakers in the History Hour series come from varied academic and non-academic backgrounds. The resulting book,Public History of Goa, will stimulate scholars, students and interested persons in the fields of history, culture, literature, politics, sociology, psychology, religion and related disciplines.
