Electricity and contagion: Two persistent metaphors for creolised dance and music

When: Wednesday, 14 March 2018 - Wednesday, 14 March 2018
Where: Off campus
CISA Committee Room, 36 Jorissen Street
Start time:14:00

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’.
