The Colonial Subaltern.

Prof Anand A Yang on his latest book ‘Empire of Convicts’ with Prof Aparna Vaidik ji.
A book I look forward to read in conjunction with The Collie’s Great War.

Fascinating personal narrative of Cheena Bhavana in Shantiniketan; where my cousin studied and my parents are Visvabharati alumni, and I am based in Singapore as a PhD Scholar 🙂 Profound as Prof Yang was born in Shantiniketan himself.

Podcasts as Archives.

#Podcasts are current day oral archives. I am really petrified of amazing conversations which find a safe space in the realm of the digital, being lost in the absence of well thought out knowledge management frameworks especially in South Asia and the Gulf.

It would be generative to have good ones transcribed and edited into books. Knowledge production and dissemination is faster via podcasts. Atleast as raw data, they are fertile fodder for theory building, if not only for spreading the word aka PR.
