This lecture will deal with cross-border disputes, such as the Kashmir conflict, as well as internal political conflicts involving religious violence and insurgencies.

*Room in Wijnhaven will be announced soon 

Dr. Roshni Sengupta is a Fellow at the International Institute for Asian Studies, Leiden. She was previously University Lecturer at Leiden Institute for Area Studies. She has a PhD in Political Studies and has one monograph and two edited volumes covering topics dealing with memories and legacies of violence in South Asia and representations of Islam in Bollywood cinema to her credit. She has also written numerous book chapters and journal articles on the subject.
