The Loom Speaks: A Study of Traditional Weaves from North East India
Special lecture with Debashree Dattaray
Introduction by Mariella Lorusso
The talk focuses on the traditional attire from an Indigenous community of North East India – the Karbis. The discussion would look at the loom as a symbol of cultural and political integrity. In the context of the growing concerns of globalization, the emphasis will be on the local as a point of solidarity and identity, especially in terms of the ‘North East’ as a crucial georgraphical entity in the map of India.
Debashree Dattaray is Assistant Professor in Comparative Literature, Jadavpur University, Kolkata. Her areas of research and publication are Indigenous Studies, Narrative Studies, Gender, Folklore, Canadian Studies and Comparative Indian Literature Methodology.
