Event Description : TALK "Exploring the Popular Culture of Urdu Language" 3-day Conference

The Centre for Indian Languages, Jawaharlal Nehru University, and Tasveer-e Urdu, cordially invite you to attend a three-day conference on Urdu’s popular culture.

While Urdu is typically celebrated as a language of romance and classical poetry by Ghalib, Mir, and Faiz etc., its lesser-acknowledged popular culture of movie songs, detective fiction, ghazal gayeki, poetry inscribed behind vehicles, mushairas, and qawwalis, has probably kept the language alive and kicking among the masses even as its more virtuous practitioners lament that Urdu is dying in India. So what are these popular forms that continue to thrive in the underbelly of classical Urdu and how different they are from its elite cultural life? More importantly, where does one draw a line between popular and classical in Urdu? This and other pertinent questions will be explored in a three-day conference featuring many scholars from India and abroad.
