A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
When: Thursday, Oct 27, 3 – 4:30pm
Where: UW Seattle Campus, Allen Library North, Allen Auditorium, ground floor
Alka Kurian, UW Bothell senior lecturer, addresses varied representations of gender in Indian cinema, exploring treatment of women on screes, the shifts and transformations of their representational journey.
How do filmmakers mobilize the image of women to differentiate Indian cinema from the West? How does the dualistic portrayal of femininity within the good/bad binary divide stereotype Indian screen women and undermine their realism?
In conjunction with the exhibit, Envisaging South Asia: Images, Art and Scholarship, on display through October 31, 2016 in Allen Library North
