Gerald J. Larson, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Religious Studies, UC Santa Barbara, and Tagore Professor Emeritus of Indian Cultures and Civilization, Indiana University relates this ancient issue to modern feminism. The lecture will be opened and closed by Notinee Dance Group. Dr. Pia Sen, founder and Director of Notinee, has created 2 original dance pieces specific to the topic of Dr. Larson’s presentation.
