Harvard South Asia Institute (SAI) and King’s India Institute invite you to a program on The 1947 Partition of British India.

Join us in London for a special event to mark the 70th anniversary of the Partition of British India and launch SAI’s major research project in one of the most important global hubs for the South Asian diaspora and the city in which many of the decisions of 1947 were made.

We have much to learn from the Partition about the complexities of large-scale human migration and resettlements. Such lessons can inform current cross-border displacement and the corresponding growth of urban settlements and cities.

Reception: 6:00-6:30pm
Panel discussion: 6:30-8:00pm

Sona Datta, Writer and Broadcaster
Tarun Khanna, Harvard Business School, Harvard University
Jennifer Leaning, T. H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard University
Ian Talbot, Department of History, University of Southampton
Discussant: Louise Tillin, Interim Director, King’s India Institute
