New Delhi-based historian Aanchal Malhotra discusses her latest work, the first and only study of the material history of the 1947 Partition of India, focusing on the belongings carried by refugees, to coincide with the paperback publication of Malhotra's work 'Remnants of Partition'. She will be in conversation with Moad Musbahi, a curator whose work investigates migration and the forms of knowledge that it engenders. The conversation will focus on the ambivalence between the fixity and transience of memory, and various ways for maintaining remembrance.
The talk will be held on Zoom and all ticketholders will receive a link on the morning of the event.
