Title: Monuments, Cities and Connected Histories Confirmation
Date: Wednesday, 6th October 2021
Time: 7:30 – 9:00PM Indian Standard Time
Pan Macmillan India has launched an aspirational series entitled Magnificent Heritage bringing together heritage conservation and historical writing. The underlying emphasis on evidence based scholarship and multivocality promises new heritage discourse. It is for serious scholars and heritage practitioners. It is also for multiple publics. Accessibility is through lucid writing and at times play between myth and reality. Translating heritage values and making them accessible is an art form. Dr Sinha has excelled at this through his monograph on six World Heritage sites and three Imperial Cities – Delhi, Agra and Fatehpur Sikri.
Panel: Dr. Shashank Shekhar Sinha is an independent researcher and currently works as Publishing Director at Routledge (South Asia). He formerly taught in undergraduate colleges at the University of Delhi. Isha Banerji is Editor at Pan Macmillan India, where she publishes books across three imprints: Pan, Macmillan and Picador. Host: Professor Dr Amareswar Galla is UNESCO Chair on Inclusive Museum and Sustainable Heritage Development at AnantU, Ahmedabad and Emeritus Faculty at the Australian National University, Canberra.
