In South Asia, the current debate around issues of citizenship has ignited divisions and unrest; however, the roots of these issues stretch back much further. This interdisciplinary panel will explore the post-Partition history of citizenship in the region, legal and constitutional developments, and the issues at play on both sides of recent legislation and counter-movements.

Jacqueline Bhabha (Professor, Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health) will be in conversation with Neha J Hiranandani to discuss her book Girl Power: Indian Women Who Broke the Rules. The discussion will focus on the challenges young women still face when it comes to access to education and health while negotiating with the societal expectations. Keeping in with the theme of Neha Hiranandani’s Girl Power – a book about bringing forth the stories of ‘rebel women’ in India – it will ponder on the factors that contribute to the success of many who do break the mould, against the odds.

Speaker: Naveen Bharathi, Mittal Institute Raghunathan Family Fellow, 2019-2020
Moderator: Satish Deshpande, Professor of Sociology, Delhi School of Economics
This presentation will show how residential caste-segregation is independent of city size, using the first-ever large-scale evidence of neighborhood-resolution data from 147 of the largest cities in contemporary India. Bharathi will discuss one of the central conundrums in Indian urbanism — the persistence of caste segregation across the country, and across cities of varying sizes. This finding punctures a hole in one of the central normative promises of India’s urbanization: the gradual withering of traditional caste-based segregation. The talk will provide further fine-grained evidence on the ghettoization of the most spatially marginalized groups in urban India: Muslims and Dalits.

Speaker: Karthika Naïr, Author and Poet
Moderator: Parimal Patil, Professor of Religion and Indian Philosophy, Harvard University
In Until the Lions, Karthika Naïr retells the Mahabharata through the embodied voices of women and marginal characters, so often conquered and destroyed throughout history. She captures the richness and complexity of the Mahabharata, while illuminating lives buried beneath the edifices of one of the world’s most venerated books — revealing the most intimate threads of desire, greed, and sacrifice.
