De Kosala a Bollywood: dos mil años contando historias. Un estudio semiótico del ramayana
R?m?ya?a originated in the north of India two thousand years ago but is a panasiatic work. Certain religious sects, political groups and social collectives have also composed and used r?m?ya?as to spread their own doctrines, thoughts, ideas and perspectives. I understand the R?m?ya?a as a textual paradigm to which different actors, arts and cultures have made their contributions in the past two millennia and continues to be recreated and interpreted today. The objective of my PhD thesis is to analyse the construction of meanings through artistic genres in which the R?m?ya?a appears to audiences of different places, periods and social groups. My studies in Semiotics, gender, oral literature and cinema as well as the sociological, linguistic and cultural impact of ten years in Asia have contributed much to the evolution of this research. I present a new perspective to approach the variety of r?m?ya?as through the semiotic concept of r?m?ya?asphere, inspired by the cultural theory of Iuri M. Lotman. The thesis is composed of four chapters, as well as an introduction, the conclusions and five annexes.
