A selection of research papers and lectures presented by Dr Pande in recent years

• A talk on ‘Art and Environment’ and ‘Art and Environment Mythology’ on 5th January, 2018 in Jaipur.
Abstract
The discipline of art and environment few decades back may have looked disparate fields that are beyond the scope of sharing any kind of resonance among each other. The terms environment, ecology, climate, just to name but few, were often considered to be the interest of science. But it is integral part of our cultural ethos and society, where the creative medium of arts has the energy to address the environmental crises.
