Speaker: Dr. Siddhartha Shah, Curator of Indian and South Asian Art at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA

In the Indian context, the ideal body full of vigor and beauty is always the body adorned. Delve further into the function of jewels in styling monarchical power in India, as well as the role of jewelry in shaping a colonial fantasy of Indian men as inherently weak and spectacularly effeminate.

In this virtual lecture, Dr. Shah will examine the fabled and fascinating history of jewelry in Indian princely states.
