Ishani Dasgupta: Rousing a Nation Across Nations: Embodied Protests and Tibetan National Mobilization
November 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Yadunandan Center for India Studies at Cal State Long Beach is proud to present a lecture by Ishani Dasgupta:
Rousing a Nation Across Nations: Embodied Protests and Tibetan National Mobilization
Dr. Dasgupta’s explores how hunger strikes transcend mere resistance. They also unite a transnational Tibetan diaspora in South Asia, Tibet, and elsewhere. Through their collective sacrifices, a deterritorialized Tibetan nation emerges.
Ishani Dasgupta is the Andrew W. Mellon HILLS postdoctoral scholar at Case Western Reserve University. She completed a joint PhD in Anthropology and South Asia Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research is based on 30 months of fieldwork amongst the Tibetan refugee communities and settlements in India, where she worked closely with grassroots political organizations, and studied their culture of resistance. Her work has been supported by the Wenner-Gren Foundation and the American Institute of Indian Studies. She has presented her research widely, both in academic forums and in policy venues. She remains committed to bringing refugee voices to the forefront of critical discussions about refugee policies and rehabilitation practices.
The event will take place on Zoom on November 28th at 6:00PM.
