There is an old Vedic phrase - "Treat the World as Family". Dr. Vishakha Desai understands this. She knows that what happens in one part of the world has an effect waayyy over on the other side of the globe. She knows because she has lived it. We all do, though we may not know it. We all live locally yet we must think globally.
Turning inward is an understandable response to the heartaches of 21st century life, but is more isolation really what the world needs right now? Drawing from an ancient Sanskrit phrase, “the world is one family,” author Vishakha Desai challenges us to consider a different way of looking at each other and the world we share. She joins co-host Ray Suarez on the podcast to talk about her new book World as Family: A Journey of Multi-rooted Belongings.
We check in with Dr. Vishakha Desai about her soon-to-be-released new book, "World as Family: A Journey of Multi-Rooted Belongings" (Columbia University Press). The conversation ranges from the pandemic’s hold over India to her beginnings in the museum field, the need for Americans to tolerate ambiguity, cultural appropriation, globalism v. nationalism, restitution of cultural heritage, the sunset of the ‘universal museum’, and other pressing issues of our time.
According to the organization Stop AAPI Hate, incidents of anti-Asian racism have risen significantly since the start of the pandemic.

In this episode of the Global Thought Podcast, Vishakha N. Desai speaks with Committee on Global Thought member Bernard E. Harcourt about his new book Critique & Praxis. Charting a vision for political action and social transformation, Harcourt argues that instead of posing the question, “What is to be done?” we must now turn it back onto ourselves and ask, and answer, “What more am I to do?”.
