Our third 'India in Focus' seminar will be presented by Dr Kiran Shinde, Community Planning and Development, La Trobe University.

This presentation examines prevailing tourism trends in heritage sites in India and then raises some pertinent questions about these trends in relation to the sustainability of those places. Adding to the conventional modes of inquiry against social, economic, and environmental indicators, this presentation argues that there is a deeper sense (or spirit) of place that plays an equally important role in understanding sustainability of heritage sites. The presentation draws on from many heritage sites that are popular in India.


The 'India in Focus' seminar series will highlight India related research at La Trobe University from all disciplines, allowing conversation and analysis on specialised topics with academics and experts.

You can choose to join us for one, two or more seminars on India.

Each seminar will have a 45 min presentation followed by 15 min Q&A.
