Professor Jane Ohlmeyer in conversation with Rashmi Poddar (Director of Jnanapravaha Mumbai).
Bio: Rashmi Poddar, former Director (Aesthetics) at the Department of Philosophy, University of Mumbai is now the Director of Jnanapravaha Mumbai (JPM). Rashmi was awarded a doctorate for her thesis, "Rasa and Ananda - A Visual Discovery", by the University of Mumbai in 1997.
Her path-breaking methodology of viewing and understanding Indian classical art has opened up new vistas and theories in the field of art history and research leading to several curated courses ranging from the one year Post Graduate Diploma in Indian Aesthetics to the semester long course on Yoga & Tantra - Concepts and Visual History. Under her guidance, JPM has presented more than 225 public programmes which cover the fields of Art History, Aesthetics, Archaeology, Architecture, Anthropology, Literature and Philosophy.
Her firm belief in an interdisciplinary approach as well as situating India globally provides crucial paradigms not only in the structure of JPM’s teaching programmes but also in its community outreach thus establishing the centre as the leading para-academic space of Mumbai.
