Introducing the Warscapes Public Lecture Series
War does not exist in a vacuum. At Warscapes, we work to move past a void within mainstream culture in the depiction of people and places experiencing violence. The Warscapes Public Lecture Series was created to offer impactful events featuring thoughtful, well-contextualized, provocative and rigorous perspectives on contemporary crises, elevating the debate.
The first event in the 2015 Series – Fieldnotes from Kashmir; Repression & Resistance, featuring Suchitra Vijayan and Inshah Malik, and moderated by Michael K. Busch – played to a great New York City crowd the evening of February 25th. Suchitra, a writer and photographer engaged in her long-term Borderlands multimedia project across the Indian frontier, and Inshah, a writer and activist working on issues of gender and agency, represent a new generation of scholars, bringing razor-sharp insights and imagery from the long durée of the Kashmir conflict. The video, which presents the event in full, was produced by the Bronx Documentary Center.
