This is a two day event.

Day 1: The Persistant Legacy: Evening Panel

Featuring Keynote Speakers Rajmohan Gandhi, Ramachandra Guha, and Vazira Zamindar

-

The 1947 partition of British India led to an estimated million deaths and ten million displaced persons, created the modern states of Pakistan and India (and arguably Bangladesh at a later date), and left a persistent legacy that shapes internal, regional and international politics to this day.

To commemorate and attempt to improve our understanding of this seminal event, James Madison College will host Rajmohan Gandhi, Ramachandra Guha, and Vazira Zamindar, three of the world's leading experts on the partition and other central questions of South Asian history and contemporary politics on Thursday, September 14, 2017, at 6:30 PM in the Lincoln Room of the Kellogg Center.
 
The three visitors and leading MSU experts will gather on Friday on the third floor at the International Center beginning at 8:30am to consider the political, cultural, environmental, agricultural, and developmental legacies in the partition era in South Asia.
