Haripriya Narasimhan Presents: Mapping the Audience: The Puzzle that is Hindi Television Soap Opera

On Tuesday, December 5, the South Asia Center is pleased to host Haripriya Narasimhan, who will present Mapping the Audience: The Puzzle that is Hindi Television Soap Opera. Looking at the world of Hindi television serials, this talk aims to highlight what an ethnographic approach to a rich “field site”, the small screen, can tell us about why an audience in a globalizing nation is hooked to dramas about family conflicts. The lecture will take place in 341 Eggers Hall at 12:30PM.
