How did India in the 20th century serve as a conduit of ideas around craft, design, and technology between Great Britain and the United States?

Sria Chatterjee (PhD candidate, Princeton University) explores the changing history of postindustrialism in the context of the "long" Arts and Crafts movement between the United States, India, and Great Britain. Chatterjee will touch upon design, anthropology and the philanthropic, development-oriented US-India narratives and tie them back to our current exhibition, Rina Banerjee: Make Me A Summary of the World.
