Neekee Chaturvedi (Jaipur, India): All Written Histories are Wrong – Perspectives from Rajasthan, India

+++ In englischer Sprache mit deutscher Übersetzung +++

In her talk, Dr Neekee Chaturvedi shall present folk narratives as an important voice in history through examples from the desert region of Rajasthan. Being rulers, ‚Rajputs‘ had become the focus of the colonial exercise of history writing. However, Rajasthani culture is not only that of the former ruling elite. Therefore, Chaturvedi shall discuss underlying social patterns and some unrecorded facets of history that can only be discovered in oral narratives from Rajasthan.

Thanks to Göttinger Stadtlabor it was possible to invite Dr. Neekee Chaturvedi from Jaipur (India) to Göttingen. Dr. Chaturvedi gave important impulses on the theatre play AVAZ | VOICES by the theatre company boat people projekt. AVAZ is part of our special exhibition „Voices “ on linguistic research in times of war.

The talk will start at 4 pm. The entry is free.
