Join us for a presentation by Leela Gandhi, professor of English, University of Chicago; Committee of Southern Asian Cultures and Societies; and senior fellow of the School of Criticism and Theory. Gandhi will discuss the outbreak of anti-imperial global mutinies in the demobilization era, with a particular focus on the Royal Indian Navy Mutiny of 1946. The talk will draw upon trial proceedings for the perpetrators of this outbreak, and analyses its negative reception in the national and world media.
