Iqbal Sevea on "Nationalism and Communalism in Popular Culture: Representations and Re-presentations of India"

Bring your lunch (yes, people do!) and learn about the ways in which the Sahmat collective employs art, theater, films, and songs to celebrate a secular vision of India. Iqbal Sevea (UNC-History) will discuss Sahmat's work and activism within the context of popular culture as a politicized terrain in which Indian society and history are represented or re-presented in various ways. 

Free and open to the public. Register for this program!

Art For Lunch is supported in part by the generosity of Drs. Leena and Sheldon Peck.
