Avid Bookshop and The Lark invite the public to an evening with author and UGA faculty member Rumya Sree Putcha from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday, January 27, 2023. Putcha, in conversation with UGA doctoral candidate, Jennifer LaRue, will discuss her first book, The Dancer's Voice: Performance and Womanhood in Transnational India, which develops a critical race and feminist approach to Indian performance cultures. The formal conversation for this event runs from 5:15pm-5:45pm.
Rumya Sree Putcha is an assistant professor in the Institute for Women's Studies as well as in the Hugh Hodgson School of Music. Her research interests center on colonial and anti-colonial thought, particularly around constructs of citizenship, race, gender, sexuality, the body, and the law. Her second book project, Namaste Nation: Orientalism and Wellness Cultures in the United States extends her work on transnational performance cultures to critical analyses of capitalist fitness industries.
This event is free and open to the public. Avid Bookshop will have books available for purchase and signing at the event.
