Conversations on South Asia with Mytheli Sreenivas

Sri Sathvik Rayala's picture

How did reproductive politics become central to producing modern India? To answer this question, Mytheli Sreenivas (The Ohio State University, History and WGSS) analyzes histories of marriages and birth control, ideas of population and economy, and subsistence crises to show that reproduction was central to debates about politics, economics, and the future of independent India. 

Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 9 from 12:15–1:15 PM (Eastern) for a discussion with the author on her latest book. Amna Qayyum (Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, Yale University) and Carole McCann (WGSS, University of Maryland, Baltimore County) will join the author in conversation. Elizabeth Lhost (History, Dartmouth) will host the discussion, which will be moderated by Douglas Haynes (History, Dartmouth).
