Invisible Libraries: Book Launch

In Chemin-des-Dames, a memorial library may be found
encased in a series of catacombs, while in Memorious, the
living have themselves become an oral record of literature.
The rules of Linearis mandate fidelity to a book till its
completion, while Dermestis Lardarius houses books in
a state of half-eaten incompleteness. Journey further into
this world, and you will find libraries taxonomized by
smell, composed of marginalia, etched in ice, and forged
in nightmares.

'Invisible Libraries' captures the sensuous, enigmatic and
aesthetic world of books and libraries. Taking a cue
from Italo Calvino’s 'Invisible Cities', the authors explore
bibliophilia, especially in the way it manifests itself via our
love aff air with libraries.


Lawrence Liang is a lawyer and writer whose idea of paradise is a library.

Monica James is a bibliophile, who also writes and makes films.

Danish Sheikh writes, does theatre, and is occasionally weighed down by the law.

Amy Trautwein prefers plants to books.

Thinking about aesthetics a lecture by Sundar Sarukkai

About the Talk: This talk will explore how and why we need to think about a concept called aesthetics. Rather than working with specific thinkers, we will explore how the concept of aesthetics arises and the kind of intellectual vocabulary one needs to understand it. So it will focus more on foundational themes that support the notion of aesthetics.
About the Speaker: Sundar Sarukkai is currently Professor of philosophy at the National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore. He was the Founding-Director of the Manipal Centre for Philosophy & Humanities, Manipal University, India from 2010-2015.

He is an Editorial Advisory Board member of the Leonardo Book Series on science and art, published by MIT Press, the Series Editor for Science and Technology Studies, Routledge and the Chief Editor of the Springer Handbook of Logical Thought in India.

His research interests include philosophy of science and mathematics, phenomenology and philosophy of language and art, drawing on both Indian and Western philosophical traditions. He has been a Homi Bhabha Fellow, Fellow of the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies at Shimla and PHISPC Associate Fellow.
