This range responses of the Australian missionaries to Indians is explored in her lecture Australian Women Missionaries in India, 19-20th Centuries. She began her presentation with an examination of the various motives for missionary activities and especially women’s participation in these activities. The enquiry indicates that the missionary space nurtured an incipient feminism in many women and was often motivated by the desire to uplift Indian sisters.  It also enabled the missionary women to go beyond the prescribed social roles for women and develop their self identities.

Prof. Pal Ahluwalia, Acting Deputy Vice Chancellor and Vice President: Academic Chancellery, University of South Australia, visited the SNDT Women’s University on 22nd November 2012 to strengthen the research/ teaching links between the two universities. He met Prof. Vasudha Kamat, Vice Chancellor, Prof Vandana Chakrabarti and Pro Vice Chancellor of the University along with Prof. Veena Poonacha, Director, RCWS, to discuss the possible areas for collaborations. An MOU has been signed between the two universities in 2008, aimed at collaborative research/teaching and student exchange. During his visit he also met the SNDT Faculty and requested them to identify areas for collaboration. He was particularly interested in strengthening collaborations with RCWS in the light of its current research interest in minority women. His interest in this area stemmed from the commitment of the Australian Government to create a socially and culturally inclusive society, particularly the Muslim minority.
