Hear Ramachandra Guha Speak

If you’re free this March 20 between 12-2 pm, consider joining me at Columbia University for a lecture on Sport and the Nation: Interpreting Indian History through the Lens of Cricket:

In India, cricketers are even more famous than its film stars; they are venerated and worshipped as gods. When India plays Pakistan, the television audience exceeds the entire population of Europe. This lecture will explain how this British sport became an Indian passion, even an Indian obsession. It will analyze the development and spread of cricket as a mass sport through the lens of caste, religion, race, and nation.

Lecture with Distinguished Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Lecturer, Ramachandra Guha, Chaired by University Professor Jagdish Bhagwati.
