Made in IWM

IMW Rector, Shalini Randeria
Shalini Randeria

The Institute aims to provide scholars, translators and journalists with an inspiring environment that affords them leisure to devote themselves to reading and writing free of other professional obligations. Not only numerous books by internationally renowned Senior Visiting Fellows but also many a first book by Junior Visiting Fellows have thus been written at the IWM.

We would like to share with you this important aspect of the Institute’s intellectual activities through a new section on our website. Books written by our Fellows during their stay at the Institute as well as books published by the IWM will be presented in this section of our website regularly.

This section of our website aims to highlight the extensive and diverse production of scholarly works at the IWM.
