Hafsa Kanjwal /// Kashmir Against the Grain of Normalcy

This conversation between Shivangi Mariam Raj and Hafsa Kanjwal focuses on the affect and mythologies deployed by India to condense Kashmir into a landscape of desire, into a territory of control, on slow and invisibilized forms of violence embedded in infrastructures of assimilation, and on the complex forms of statecrafting under successive client regimes that have contributed to the strengthening of India’s settler-colonial project in Kashmir today. We also discuss methods of resistance practiced by the peoples of Jammu and Kashmir and how they help us think about liberation in the global landscape of postcolonial colonialism.
