“Out of India: Diasporic Politics and Colonialism in Kenya” | Lecture by Sana Aiyar


Sana Aiyar, Assistant Professor of History at MIT will deliver a lecture at the South Asia Colloquium event on October 2. The lecture is entitled Out of India: Diasporic Politics and Colonialism in Kenya. Aiyar will discuss the political strategies and claims of belonging made by the Indian diaspora in their encounters with colonialism and indigeneity in Kenya. Using the Indian Ocean as a horizon from which to study local history in a transnational framework, Aiyar will analyze the competing and contradictory political strategies and claims of belonging made by Indians in their encounters with colonialism and indigeneity in Kenya. The talk will be accompanied by a power-point presentation.
