“Trading in Stories” – an ELSA invite 24th May 2016

Sumedha Verma Ojha, Economics Hons, Class of 1989, Researcher, Author and Speaker on Ancient India (and based in Geneva, Switzerland) invites ELSAs to a lecture by her at the IGNCA in New Delhi on 24th May at 4.30 pm.

'Trading in Stories' will bring alive the oral and literary traditions which have for millennia, since the days of Harappa and Mohenjodaro, flown across land and sea with the monsoons, which carried ships, traders and their stories. The focus will be on the 1st milleniumbce and its turn into the common era. How did stories from the Ramayana, the Brihat Katha, Buddhist and Jain traditions move and change shape as they reached new places and new cultures. What are the references in these works themselves to lands and people far away? How did Greek geographers understand the Indian Ocean trade? What is the link between Shakespeare and the Brihat Katha of Gunadhya?
