October’s Event: Special Guests

Srajana is a writer curator and researcher working with the spoken and written word, Indian literary theories – rasa dhvani, architectural urban spaces and aesthetics.
Sunil Gupta is known in the UK and India as an international Photographer, curator, activist and scholar. As a founding member of Autograph ABP and OVA, and curator of the recent exhibition When Three Dreams Cross: 150 Years of Photography from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, Whitechapel (2010) amongst others, he has been at the forefront of exploring photography in relation to Indian photography practice, queer culture, and HIV awareness.
In the spirit of Stuart Hall’s work, please join us for a great evening of thought-provoking discussion.
The Stuart Hall Library Research Network is a meeting place for discussion of practice-based or more conventional forms of research that may include: curatorial practice; visual arts; global art; film and media; cultural studies; cultural activism; postcolonial studies; literary studies, including criticism and theory. We are also looking for exciting and engaging ways of uncovering research, presenting in a variety of forms. This might include individual presentations, presentations in pairs, in conversation/dialogue with each other, or presenting a group project.
If you are interested in introducing your research to an informal, engaged audience, please email a 250 word summary of your intended presentation to Sonia Hope, Library Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
