The Haunting Specter of Hindu Ethnonationalist- Neocolonial Development in the
Indian Occupied Kashmir
Thursday, February 27, 3:30-5 PM
Boulder Public Library (Main), 1001 Arapahoe, Boulder CO
Boulder Creek Room
Ather Zia, Ph.D., is a political anthropologist, poet, columnist,
and short-fiction writer. Her recent publication is Resisting Disappearances: Military occupation and women’s activism in Kashmir. Dr. Zia is an Assistant Professor at the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley.
Learn about how India has unconstitutionally removed the autonomy of Indian administered Kashmir, and how the Kashmiri people's movement for UN-mandated right to self-determination and democratic sovereignty has been steadily criminalized since 1947. The removal of Kashmir’s autonomy should be seen as neocolonialism based on fundamentalist Hindu ethnonationalism. The fear of Indian settler colonialism, dispossession of indigenous Kashmiris, and rampant exploitation of resources is on the rise.
