Chats Ep. 10: Migrations in Global History

VOL. 1
LIVE
On the utility and meaning of global history & rethinking migration narratives

NEILESH BOSE




Drama Editor Neilesh Bose and the editor of the volume South Asian Migrations in Global History: Labour, Law, and Wayward Lives (Bloomsbury, 2020) discusses the genesis of the project & new ways of telling history with Kamil Ahsan.

The collection, a result of a workshop at the University of Victoria, explores how South Asian migrations in modern history have shaped key aspects of globalization since the 1830s. Including original research from colonial India, Fiji, Mexico, South Africa, North America and the Middle East, the essays explore indentured labour and its legacies, law as a site of regulation and historical biography. It includes recent scholarship on the legacy of issues such as consent, sovereignty and skilled/unskilled labour distinctions from the history of indentured labour migrations, and brings together a range of historical changes that can only be understood by studying South Asian migrants within a globalized world system.
