Meet the Author: Pravina Shukla

05:00 pm
College Arts and Humanities Institute - 1211 East Atwater Avenue

Thursday, December 1st at 5:00 pm the College Arts and Humanities Institute will be hosting Pravina Shukla. Shukla, Associate Professor of Folklore at IUB, will discuss her recent book, Costume: Performing Identities through Dress (IU Press, 2015). Daily dress reflects personal identity; costume is often described as the clothing of who we are not, of the people we are pretending to be. But costume signals a different self, urging the daily further along an artistic trajectory that leads to heightened communication and often culminates in a spectacle for public consumption. Like ritual, costumed events are distinct from daily existence, and therefore they allow for extreme forms of dress to aid in the formation of an alternative identity.
Attendance is free and open to the public.

Cost: Free
