Why has the ancient tale of Rama, Sita, and their companions remained (so to speak) a “bestseller” in the realm of South Asian popular narrative for more than two millennia, and why does it continue to have traction in the rapidly changing India of the early 21st century? In an illustrated lecture titled “Why is Rama Still (All) Around?,” Professor of Hindi and Modern Indian Studies at the University of  Iowa Philip Lutgendorf  will explore “four dimensions” of the epic story that have long resonated in the cultural imagination of the subcontinent. This lecture is cosponsored by the Emory’s South Asia Seminar Series.
