Online Talk – Remembering 1947: The Inheritance of Partition

August 5 @ 2:00 pm BST

Discover the extraordinary stories of those who survived and witnessed the largest mass migration in the world

Ahead of the 75th anniversary of Partition, oral historian Aanchal Malhotra draws on her decade-long research in India, Pakistan and the UK, to understand how Partition is not yet an event of the past.

Join her in looking at how its consequences manifested within family, community, and nation, and how its memory is preserved into the present.

Aanchal Malhotra is an oral historian and writer from New Delhi, India. She is the co-founder of the Museum of Material Memory, and writes extensively on the 1947 Partition and its related topics. Her first book, published in South Asia as Remnants of a Separation (HarperCollins India 2017) and internationally as Remnants of Partition (Hurst, 2019), was shortlisted for the British Academy’s Nayef Al-Rodhan Prize for Global Cultural Understanding. In the Language of Remembering is her second book.

What’s Online is a series of talks, in conversation events and webinars delivered by The National Archives’ experts and special guests. Events last approximately one hour, including an audience Q&A.

This event will be presented on Microsoft Teams.
