Githa Hariharan | Narrating Contested Homes: Fiction and Real Life

March 25, 2016, 8:00 am - 10:00 am

How do you bring together theory, art and political practice in today’s cultural situation in India? One way to do this is to look at how “home” has been narrated – in literature, both fiction and non-fiction, as well as in real life. Githa Hariharan examines contemporary cultural politics in India to describe the transformation of home into a “disputed territory” – with increasing exclusions and attempts to reduce diverse cultural strands into one homogenous narrative.
