Ala – A Kerala Studies Blog


S. Harikrishnan (Co-editor, Ala)

Ala’s 11th issue ala.keralascholars.org/issues/issue-11/ is now out, and features three articles:
– Thea Buckley writes about the history of Malayalam translations of Shakespeare’s works.

– In “Malayalam Cinema’s Other,” Darshana Mini delves into the history of the soft-porn film industry in Kerala and the stardom of Shakeela.

– What can be done to tackle the problem of low Female Labour Force Participation Rate in Kerala? Rajesh explores this question in his article, “കേരളത്തിലെ സ്ത്രീകളും അവരുടെ ഗാര്‍ഹികപരമായ ചുമതലകളും.”

In our crowdsourced feature with snippets of Kerala history and culture, read about Karumadi Kuttan , and a lithograph of the Travancore Raja based on a painting from 1841.
