Jean Claude Carriere: Writing - Film vs Theatre


Organized by Sukanya C.

Levinthal Hall, Stanford Humanities Center. Monday, March 18, 2013 | 4:00pm until 5:30pm in PDT.

Jean Claude Carriere draws from his six decades of experience in constructing stories to explain commonalities, differences and the evolution of the two different storytelling modes.




Sukanya Thumbnail I received my doctoral degree in Theater and Performance Studies at Stanford in June 2016. My dissertation, completed under the guidance of Dr. Jisha Menon, was awarded the Charles R. Lyons Memorial Prize for Outstanding Dissertation. My research project was supported by the Graduate Research Opportunities Award in Stanford, which facilitated my fieldwork in India and Bangladesh during the summer of 2013 and 2014; and the Wisch Fellowship by the Center for South Asia, Stanford University, for my work in South Asian theater and performance studies. I identify as an artist-scholar, and my training and specialization are in the area of oral history; postcolonial and ethnic studies (with a focus on South Asian performance studies); ethnomusicology; dramatic literature; transcultural theater and performance; experimental devised performances; and community-based performance-making.


It would be wonderful to hear back from you, and you can always reach me via email.
