#HeritageHistories - And Recollections Of Bombay by Sudeshna Guha : Talk 93

INR 0/- PER PERSON (All inclusive)

How is heritage created? Both - conflicts and silences - have played their part in the making of India’s regional and national heritage following independence. Objects, including monuments, move in and out of many histories and often pose resistance to our efforts to make meaning of them. At our Online Talk #HeritageHistories, historian Sudeshna Guha highlights the importance of interrogating the practices and curation of heritage making through histories of museums, collections and the administration of archaeology. She reflects upon issues of ethics that implicate acts of heritagisation and recalls exhibitions that may be little-known, such as of Assyrian antiquities in 19th century Bombay.
