Radio Inteview: Pravina Shukla on Body Art
The WFHB radio program Interchange recently did an excellent long-format interview with my colleague Pravina Shukla. Using her book Grace of Four Moons: Dress, Adornment, and the Art of the Body in Modern India as a springboard, Pravina and host Dave Stewart engage in a lively, interesting and very substantive discussion of body adornment practices worldwide. The interview is an engaging overview of Pravina’s work and an excellent introduction to folkloristic perspectives on adornment as an expressive and material culture phenomena.
