The workshop 'Creation of Public Meaning in Nepal' is a collaborative research project between School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London and Martin Chautari, Kathmandu. The workshop is aimed at understanding the democratic transition in Nepal better, fostering collaboration between researchers from Nepal and those working on Nepal and increasing the level of non- Nepali engagement with indigenous Nepali scholarship.
The workshop explores the ways in which the meaning of socio-political events and development is constructed, conveyed and consumed in Nepal through well established mediums of print media, FM radio etc but also through theater, film, rumors, poetry etc.
The workshop will be held at the School of Oriental and African Studies on the 4th and 5th of July. Registration will be required to attend the workshop.
