About the event

The 20th century was a period of great change for South Asia. Entering the century during the British Raj, the region was rocked by partition in 1947. This led to the gradual, and often difficult, forging of the modern nations of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Joya Chatterji looks beyond the political and the national to explore other themes that make up the history South Asia. She will shine a light on the many things that people across the region have in common, touching on the history of food, leisure time and family.
