About this Event

Scholars of empire and colonial South Asia have demonstrated how colonialism shaped and was enacted through personal interactions, material objects, and on individual human bodies, but these insights only recently have begun extending into histories of internationalism. These three papers explore the smallest spaces and scales of South Asian internationalism. They highlight South Asia’s empirical potential to form the basis for a conceptualization of the linkage between the intimate, the political, and the global.

This session will provide an opportunity for questions and conversation around three pre-recorded talks:

1. Joanna Simonow (Kaete Hamburger Kolleg), “Friends, Lovers, Allies: Feminism, Interracial Intimacy and Indian Anti-Colonial Nationalism in Europe, c. 1910s-1940”

2. Carolien Stolte (University of Leiden), “Fellow Travelers: Radical Sociability and the Indian Peace Movement, 1950s-70s”

3. Amna Qayyum (Princeton University), “From the Clinic to Bazaar: Women’s Welfare and the Genesis of Pakistan’s Family Planning Program”
