This series is of exceptional interest since it is being organized by faculty at St Aloysius College ( https://aloysiuscollege.ac.in), the only Arts and Science College in the rural area of Kuttanadu, in India, who are hoping to reach a worldwide audience and put their college on the map. Most of their students are from underprivileged background, such as the children of fisherfolk and laborers.
St. Aloysius College, Edathua offers 9 UG and 5 PG programs, affiliated to MG University. The college has 73 teaching staff, 19 non-teaching staff and 1200 students. Located in Edathua, Alappuzha, Kerala.
The series will cover a wide range of topics in theater and performance studies, presented by an international slate of theater scholars and professionals. Classicists, please note that the presentation on January 22nd will be by Muditha Dharmasiri, who recently earned her MA in Classics from the University of Washington (firstname.lastname@example.org) and now teaches at the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka (http://arts.pdn.ac.lk/classical/mdh.htm).
