KashmirConnected is a resource for those interested in Kashmir's modern history, and seeks to offer a sense of community to those engaged with the valley's recent past. This site reaches out beyond the campus and the research institute to all who have an interest in Kashmir and its history. It is not partisan, and is open to all shades of opinion.
The site offers a digest of news, interviews, publications and events about Kashmir's modern history. There is a reviews and reports page - which looks at books, articles, conferences and occasionally creative work, novels or film for example, which address issues about Kashmir's past. Offers of reviews are welcome.
The historian Chitralekha Zutshi contributes a Kashmir Journal, covering themes as disparate as food in Kashmiri culture and how trauma is represented in recent Kashmiri fiction.
If there's anything else you would like this site to offer, please let us know.
KashmirConnected does not seek or receive funding and is entirely non-commercial. It was established by Andrew Whitehead who moderates the site. To find out more, use the contact form at the bottom of the page.
