Literary Imaginaries of Kashmir

This talk aims to highlight as to how we  understand Kashmiri writers' positioning as the representative of Kashmir, an ascription both accepted and rejected by their writings and a situation parallel to the political positions available to the Kashmiri thinker or writer today.
