South Asian Studies at Leiden University are pleased to announce a conference on the theme of “South Asia and the Long 1930s: Appropriations and Afterlives”, to be held 6 and 7 December 2013. Placing a particular focus on the complex forms and terrains of the political, social and cultural currents of 1930s, the conference is bringing together South Asianists across disciplinary locations who will contextualise the international flow of ideas, commodities and affinities that marked the interwar period, and rethink the afterlives of the 1930s in the unfolding dialectics of decolonisation in South Asia.
