The impact of the 1947 Partition still ripples throughout South Asia, 73 years later. However, our knowledge of this historic event is constantly being reevaluated by academics and researchers who have continued to illuminate the details of what occurred. Moderated by Jennifer Leaning, Professor of the Practice of Health and Human Rights at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, this panel explores how new research efforts help us understand the full depth of the history and legacy of Partition.
Ian Talbot, Professor of History and Director of the Centre for Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies at the University of Southampton, and Yaqoob Bangash, Assistant Professor at Information Technology University in Lahore, join the discussion to provide their insights on this historic event.
This event was co-sponsored with the Harvard Club of India and the Harvard Club of Pakistan.
