Critical South Asia Group at Warwick and Warwick Interdisciplinary Centre for International Development (WICID) - book launch and panel discussion.
The Critical South Asia Group at Warwick and the Warwick Interdisciplinary Centre for International Development (WICID) invite you to this book launch and panel discussion.
Indian Debates on the International Left: Selected Writings of Lajpat Rai ed. by Shirin Rai and Anand Prakash traces the Indian Left’s engagement with the international communist debates of the 1960s and 1970s, shedding new light on the fault lines within the Left as well as on its international solidarities. Lajpat Rai argued for rethinking established leftist positions, seeking inspiration in experiment and developing creative approaches for the sustainability of socialist ideas and ideals.
The panel will reflect on the critical legacies of left internationalism and its futures, as well as discuss what it means to remember and write histories of the left in India and elsewhere in the current moment.
