Border Crossings

Listen as we reflect on the enduring effects of Partition through a conversation with third-generation Partition descendants from India and Pakistan, who are also oral historians doing the work of memory. 

Listen as we reflect on the enduring effects of Partition through a conversation with third-generation Partition descendants from India and Pakistan, who are also oral historians doing the work of memory. We delve into conversations around how their memory work both transcends and is contained by national borders and boundaries and how it challenges the divide between "this" and "that" side.
