Partition and the South Asian Diaspora

Dr Joya Chatterji was educated at the Universities of Delhi and at Trinity College, Cambridge, where she is now a Fellow and Lecturer in History. Her first book published in 1994, Bengal divided, Hindu communalism and partition,1932-1947 was the first work which drew attention to the role of Hindu communalism in 1947. It was translated into Bangla by University of Dhaka press in 2003. Last year, her second monograph on the consequences of the partition, The spoils of partition, was published by Cambridge University Press. Dr Chatterji has written widely on communalism, borders, refugees, migration and identity-formation, and is presently leading a large AHRC project on the Bengali diaspora in the delta and the UK.

he Brick Lane Circle organises a unique annual seminar series on Bangladesh and Bangladeshis abroad. Presenters come from a range of backgrounds and from a multitude of perspectives. The series culminates in a conference focusing on an aspect of Bangladeshi history, politics or social paradigm that has a lasting effect on that country.

2008 Seminars are now over, the new seminars will commence in 2009, details will be posted in due course.
