“The Centre for Film Studies, NLUO-Workshop on ‘Addressing Social and Legal Issues through Popular Media’.” 

About The Workshop

Traditionally, art has been an accessible media instrument for communication. In the case of popular arts like films or dramas that heavily influence popular culture, the impact it can have is manifold. It acts as a mirror of the society with conformist as well as defiant voices. Sometimes, popular art goes beyond entertainment and portrays many social and legal issues, leading the society and social workers to move forward.

The aim of this workshop is to learn and understand how popular media addresses different social and legal issues by bringing the representation of the marginalised population against stigmatisation to the forefront. The workshop, thus, is  specially focussing on the importance of Cultural Therapy as a major instrument in  reformation and rehabilitation of marginalised populations and its contribution in research and academics. Hence, inviting students, scholars  and academicians of law, social sciences, literature, film studies,  and other humanities streams for this innovative event.
