E. Dawson Varughese (Independent scholar, UK and India) presented his research entitled Public wall art in Mumbai: ‘seeing’ Indianness, gendered violence and patriotism at the Sociological Research Colloquium.
When: Friday, 16th March 2018 at 3:00 p.m.
Where: Seminar Room (First Floor), Department of Sociology, University of Delhi
This research paper examines public-generated wall art in two locations in Mumbai. Through semiotic analysis, I explore how ideas of ‘Indianness’, gendered violence and patriotism are communicated by way of image and text, highlighting how meaning resides in the palimpsestic – in the layers of paint, languages, the physical sites and cultural contexts in, and through which, the wall art resides.
