AKADEMI – SOUTH ASAIN DANCE UK PRESENTS …
NO MAN'S LAND EXPLORING SOUTH ASIANNESS
Saturday 22 May 2004 10am - 4pm, ICA Cinema 1
Bookings: 020 7930 3647
'South Asianness': new nationality or convenient catch all? The term has achieved wide currency today - often for the sake of political expedience - but it is hotly disputed within the Diaspora as well as the regions themselves. Is 'South Asianness' a diverse and resilient state of being or just 'Indianness' in disguise? To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Akademi, in collaboration with the ICA, presents Sunil Khilnani (author of The Idea of India and a forthcoming biography of Nehru) in a one-day symposium examining the origin, development and relevance of the term to those living within the bounds of this pan-national label.
With Yasmin Alibhai-Brown (The Independent), Daud Ali (School of African Studies), Jeevan Deol (St John's College, Cambridge), Andrée Grau (Roehampton Institute), Shobana Jeyasingh (Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company), Keith Khan (Moti Roti), Sanjoy Roy (The Guardian), Sanjay Sharma (University of East London), Pavan Varma (Nehru Centre), Parminder Vir (Carlton TV).
