The Centre for Indian Studies (CISA) will host a talk by Ananya Jahanara Kabir, Professor of English Literature at King’s College London.

In this talk, she will use a range of archival sources to probe this long-standing explication of the connection produced through creolised social dance as ‘electricity', while comparing it to another, equally persistent metaphor for explicating that connection, ‘contagion'.
