After recent actions involving the Indian government and Kashmir, a group of independent global citizens formed to stand in solidarity with the people of Kashmir in ending the occupation and supporting their right to self-determination.

As part of that effort they created #TheKashmirSyllabus

“This syllabus compiles a list of sources for teaching and learning about Kashmir. It foregrounds voices, histories, and aspirations of people from within Kashmir, and moves beyond prior scholarship that often took security studies approaches and thereby privileged the statist perspectives of India and Pakistan. This critical body of work on Kashmir allows for a lens into the broader study of the modern state, occupation, nationalism, sovereignty, militarization, social movements, resistance, human rights, international law, and self-determination.”

You can browse the syllabus and then search for the item in our catalog. If you need help finding a particular item, please Ask a Librarian!

This exhibit highlights materials from the UC San Diego Library’s collections. If you see a book in the display cases you would like to check out, library cardholders may request it from the catalog, and we’ll put it on the hold shelf for you.
