#BetweenTheLines - Decoding Symbols In Indian Culture by Urmi Chanda : Talk 71

Date: 23-Jan-2021 | Time: 6 PM

INR 0/- PER PERSON (All inclusive)

An amazing variety of symbols are thrown at us everyday - from religious symbols to secular ones, from myth and history to cinema and life - everything from Om to emojis. At our Online Talk #BetweenThe Lines, cultural researcher Urmi Chanda gives a broad overview of the most significant symbols occurring in Indian culture, and mixes and matches both, historical and semiotic perspectives, to give the most relevant meanings and applications of certain symbols. Under scrutiny will be some non-traditional symbols such as people, slang, and emojis too! The talk will also examine the ways in which the symbols evolve and intersect, and will, hopefully, help us to read a little better between the lines.
