Inventing South Asia

VOL. 1
INTERVIEW
Historian Manan Ahmed, in conversation with Senior Editor Naib Mian.

MANAN AHMED

We're not post-colonial. We're post-colonized...Even if purportedly colonialism ended, it didn't end for the languages we speak, for the passports we hold, for the laws that govern our lives. To claim post-coloniality is a mirage.

RECOMMENDED: The Loss of Hindustan: The Invention of India by Manan Ahmed Asif (Harvard University Press, 2020).
