A free, one-day symposium marking the 70th anniversary of India’s independence. This multidisciplinary conference looks at the events of 1947 in their historic moment and the multiple afterlives of Indian independence as a concept in fields ranging from history and politics to literature, film, music, and performance studies.
Presentations will reconsider India’s independence beyond national boundaries and contexts, and explore the globalized connections of 1947 and its aftermath across disciplinary, geopolitical and linguistic landscapes.
