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.
We are delighted to post a report by Patricia O'Neill of a symposium in the United States commemorating the life and work of the poet Agha Shahid Ali, and giving details of The Beloved Witness project through which his archive and writings will be made much more widely accessible.
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 below.
