The Moynihan Institute of International Affairs and the South Asia Center are proud to present SU-Maxwell faculty member, Mona Bahn, along with her contributors, Haley Duschinski, associate professor of anthropology at Ohio University; Deepti Misri, associate professor of women and gender studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, Mohd Tahir Ganie, Ph.D. from Dublin University, and Haris Zargar, doctoral candidate at the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), Erasmus University Rotterdam. Together they will be launching their new book the "Routledge Handbook of Critical Kashmir Studies."

The "Routledge Handbook of Critical Kashmir Studies" presents emerging critical knowledge frameworks and perspectives that foreground situated histories and resistance practices to challenge colonial and postcolonial forms of governance and state building. It politicizes discourses of nationalism, patriotism, democracy and liberalism, and it questions how these dominant globalist imaginaries and discourses serve institutionalized power, create hegemony, and normalize domination. In doing so, the handbook situates Critical Kashmir Studies scholarship within global scholarly conversations on nationalism, sovereignty, indigenous movements, human rights and international law.

The handbook is organized into the following five parts: Territories, Homelands, Borders Militarism, Humanism, Occupation Memories, Futures, Imaginations Religion, History, Politics Armed Conflict, Global War, Transnational Solidarities.
