'South Asia's Partition in A Global Perspective' 

2017 marks the 70th anniversary of perhaps the most important year of South Asia’s 20th century. The year saw the end of the British rule in India and the creation of the independent dominions of India and Pakistan. As was pointed out for another equally turbulent time, 1947 was a year in which “decades happened.” This day-long international conference will explore the consequences of 1947 for South Asian history seventy years, focused on themes as wide-ranging as ideologies, cultural reconfigurations, global politics and regional histories.
