Social Sciences, Arts and Creation – First CSH Visual Evening
On 15 January 2015, the Centre for Social Sciences and Humanities organized the screening of the award-winning film The Sky Below, directed by Sarah Singh. Shot on both sides of the Indo-Pak border, with a strong local ethos communicated through the music, the language and the people, the film evokes both painful memories and raises powerful issues, linked on the Partition of India and its long-lasting impacts on the subcontinent.
Followed by a discussion with the Director, this first CSH visual evening was also marking the launch ofthe Social Sciences Arts & Creation Research programme. This new programme aims at extending the traditional academic approach of the Centre in using different research tools.
