IIAS Lunch Lecture

The 2002-violence against the Muslim minority in the Indian State of Gujarat was the first of its kind that was live-televised to national audiences. This lecture will elaborate on how it was precisely this unprecedented mediatization that has rendered the violence unidentifiable, und unpublishable, as a crime.

IIAS Lunch Lecture

New narratives, such as Amitav Ghosh’s 'Ibis Trilogy' (2008/2011/2012) or David Mitchell’s 'The Thousand Autumns of Jacob Zoet' (2010), are probing into the silenced world of the women in the twilight zones of South Asia's port towns, breaking the stereotype of the masculine project of the colonial narrative. This paper by Aatreyee Ghosh aims to read these works as fiction as agencies of disruption.
