Dr Chandrani Chatterjee, SPPU, will speak on translating the woman’s body, Dr Sneha Gole from the Women’s Studies Centre will discuss current issues on feminism, Dr Laila Garda, head of research KEM Hospital will share her experiences in the field and renown social worker Laxmi Narayan will talk about the rag-pickers at SwAch. Students from St Mira’s and other parts of Maharashtra have worked hard and will present their papers based on data they have gathered working in the field. The students’ papers will be published as conference proceedings in order to initiate them into the world of research.

The scope of the seminar is to examine past perceptions towards the woman’s body and how these perceptions have changed due to corporate, social, religious and cultural interventions and thereafter manifested themselves in myth, cinema and advertising.
