Frontier Urbanism Month - Art and roundtable discussion

Art by Shawon Akand (Dhaka)

Roundtable discussion on Frontier Urbanism with Shubhra Gururani (York U, Toronto) and Rajarshi Dasgupta (JNU, New Delhi)

Frontier Urbanism refers to two fault lines that have shaped the cities in South Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean: the ever-expanding frontier between urban and rural, and the frontiers created by ethnic cleansing and religious communalism in the process of nation formation. In a series of events we seek to illuminate how these two frontiers have intersected and overlapped in surprising ways, often long after traumatic events of Partition and displacement have passed into memory.
