Virtual talk: Writing Legal Histories in South Asia

Virtual talk history department shiv nadar university
Event Date: 
Thursday, February 25, 2021 -

The Department of History invites you to a virtual talk titled ‘Writing Legal Histories in South Asia’ by Dr. Kalyani Ramnath, Prize Fellow in Economics, History, and Politics, Center for History and Economics; and Lecturer at Harvard University. The talk will be held on February 25, 2021.

This talk will suggest ways of reading, writing, and archiving law and legal sources in South Asia. Often, we think of law and history as disciplinary formations tied to nation-states. This talk will discuss scholarly approaches that question these assumptions, and in this context, discuss the stakes of writing legal histories in (and not merely, of) South Asia.
