Spring 2022 George Parker Winship Lecture: "Documenting Indigenous Nations, War, and Peace"


Wednesday, April 13, 2022, 5:30pm to 7:00pm


Houghton Library, Quincy St. & Harvard St., Cambridge

The Spring 2022 George Parker Winship Lecture at Houghton Library will be given by Scholars at Risk and Harvard Library Fellow Binalakshmi Nepram. In 1949, Manipur—a southeast Asian nation state with a 2,000-year history—was forcibly “merged” with India. Still under martial law today, the history and culture of its Indigenous inhabitants have been suppressed through decades of state-sanctioned violence. In her lecture, "Documenting Indigenous Nations, War, and Peace: Discovering and Preserving the Stories, Struggles, and History of Manipur, Northeast India," Nepram will discuss efforts to document the Indigenous cultures of Manipur amidst the struggles of its recent history.
