Listen: Dance Professor Pallabi Chakravorty on Indian Reality Show and Bollywood Dancers
This semester, Associate Professor of Dance Pallabi Chakravorty discussed her current ethnographic research on reality show and Bollywood dancers as part of the Second Tuesday Arts & Humanities Cafe series. Chakravorty's areas of interest are reflected in the classes she teaches, which include Kathak, dance theory, and dance and anthropology.
Sponsored by the Aydelotte Foundation, the Second Tuesday Arts & Humanities Cafes are a monthly series that highlight the intellectual relevance of humanities approaches to arts and culture. Topics have ranged from visual narratives in Japan to reflections on life and death in South Indian religions and current intersections of theater, dance, and music performance in the United States. Events are geared for individuals with no formal background in the arts and humanities. The only requirement is curiosity.
