The primary objective of the seminar is to understand the question of gender as it is unfolded in the dynamics between culture, community and identity in the present-day world. The gender relations and the role of women in India constitute a key area for analysing the multiple possibilities of weaving the cultural plot in a specific social setting. Studying gender in the Indian context involves engaging with the complexity of the process through which humans in general and women especially deal with the dichotomies of innovation and tradition, continuity and change, personal and collective duties and rights and individual achievements. Thus, the study of gender is fraught with complex negotiations, deeply imbued with culturally contexted meanings. The Seminar seeks to unravel this complexity by engaging with gender and identity issues across culture, community and ethnicity.
6th November 2017
The workshop focus on a synthesis of aesthetic, sociological, and psychological domains as it develops internationally within the cultural psychology framework.
Through a set of conceptual instances and practical activities, the workshop offers a unique progressive exploration of the human decoration: from the body to the world.
It combines plenary lectures, various task of decoration and group discussion that are meant to get insights into Kerala ways of ordinary living. All these activities can led the participants towards a theoretical advancement in understanding the psychological function of temporary and permanent decorations of ourselves and the world around us.
