Six Jehangir Sabavala Lecture  image.jpg

6th Jehangir Sabavala Memorial Lecture

In Collaboration with The Jehangir Sabavala Memorial Foundation

Auditorium, Visitors Centre, CSMVS

This lecture speaks of the manner in which a foreigner learned how to read Shakespeare in India, through India, and as India. It is equally a love letter to popular Hindi cinema and the much-maligned phenomenon of the masala movie.

Jonathan Gil Harris is Professor of English and Dean of Academic Affairs at Ashoka University and the author of a number of books. He is also President of the Shakespeare Society of India.
