Inter-University Postcolonial Seminar Series: Spring 2009

Making Britain: South Asian Resistances, 1870–1950

This seminar series has developed from the AHRC-funded project ‘Making Britain: South Asian Visions of Home and Abroad, 1870–1950’. Complicating the common perception that a homogeneous British culture only began to diversify after the Second World War, the project examines how an early South Asian diasporic population impacted on Britain’s literary, cultural and political life. ‘Making Britain’ is led by Professor Susheila Nasta (Open University), in collaboration with Professor Elleke Boehmer (University of Oxford) and Dr Ruvani Ranasinha (King’s College London), and Research Assistants Dr Sumita Mukherjee (Oxford), Dr Rehana Ahmed (Open) and Dr Florian Stadtler (Open). Please visit the project website for more details and information about other forthcoming workshops and events: http://www.open.ac.uk/Arts/south-asians-making-britain/

This series of seminars co-ordinated by Dr Sumita Mukherjee and Dr Rehana Ahmed will be addressing various forms of resistance by South Asians in Britain during this period. It forms part of the regular series organised by the Open University Postcolonial Research Group in association with the Institute of English Studies.

Venue: NG15 (North Block, Institute of English Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E)
