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.
