About the event:

The Harvard South Asia Institute, along with the Faiz Foundation Trust, welcomes you to a roundtable discussion on its Partition Project, “The 1947 Partition of British India: Looking Back, Informing the Future” and a poetry performance titled, 'Hum Dekhein Gey'. Participants will share their research and art, on an event that forever has reshaped the relationships and politics in South Asia.

The discussion will explore fertile ground for building scholarship not only on the Partition but also more generally on mass migrations, forced population displacement, and other emerging research areas relating to involuntary population movement. The performance will include readings from the writings of Alys and Faiz.
