Symposium
INTRODUCTION

From : Ist February to 4th February 2011

The Symposium shall take place over three days looking at the Bhopal Gas Tragedy and its impact from multidisciplinary perspectives. Students will present their work from the workshop to a panel of jurists. The workshop results will be discussed in the light of the social, urban and ecological legacy of the Tragedy. Representatives of the community hit by the tragedy, social workers, policy analysts, heritage experts, environmentalists and bureaucrats will present a critique of Bhopal after 25 years of the disaster.

The symposium will investigate central themes as previously outlined in Bhopal 2011. Using cases from around the world the Bhopal Gas Tragedy would be explored as Event and Metaphor to illustrate the possibilities for the regeneration of the site as a heritage site and as a memorial.

Methodology

The first three days of the symposium will encompass presentations of selected papers as well as talks by invited speakers. A key input will be the presentation and discussion of the students work from the preceding workshop. Each thematic session will conclude with panel discussions and interactive sessions.

The final day will mark the opening of the public exhibition of the output of Bhopal 2011 including a photo exhibition by Sakiko Nomura, renowned photographer based in Tokyo, of photographs of Bhopal. While showcasing the work done through the course of the workshop, the exhibition opening will provide an occasion to outline future initiatives and collaborations based on Bhopal.
