About This Webinar

We will reflect on the enduring effects of Partition through a conversation with third-generation Partition descendants from India and Pakistan, who are also oral historians doing the work of memory. We will explore how their memory work both transcends and is contained by national borders and boundaries and how it challenges the divide between "this" and "that" side.

Join us for a raw and awe-inspiring conversation between Aanchal Malhotra, Anam Zakaria and Shruti Devgan.
