The Routledge Handbook of Critical Kashmir Studies: Book Discussion
A discussion on the significant publication: The Routledge Handbook of Critical Kashmir Studies edited by Mona Bhan, Haley Duschinski, and Deepti Misri. The Routledge Handbook of Critical Kashmir Studies presents emerging critical knowledge frameworks and perspectives that foreground situated histories and resistance practices to challenge colonial and postcolonial forms of governance and state building. It politicizes discourses of nationalism, patriotism, democracy, and liberalism, and it questions how these dominant globalist imaginaries and discourses serve institutionalized power, create hegemony, and normalize domination. In doing so, the handbook situates Critical Kashmir Studies scholarship within global scholarly conversations on nationalism, sovereignty, indigenous movements, human rights, and international law.
