Undergraduate student Aleeshah Nasir presented her research on the role and complex relationships of the epic heroine Sita in three different literary versions of the Ramayana–the classic Hindu version, a Buddhist version, and a dramatic adaptation by a famous Sanskrit playwright–at the Ackland Museum’s Spring 2019 Student Showcase. She argued that although Sita appears differently in these texts, still has deep relevance and is a source of inspiration to many South Asian women. A first-year at Carolina, Aleeshah impressively completed this research project for an advanced seminar, ASIA 522.
