Infrastructures of Occupation: Dams, Development, and the Politics of Integration in Kashmir
This talk analyzes the relationship between dam building, border wars, and India’s settler colonial politics in Kashmir, particularly in the aftermath of the removal of Articles 370 and 35A that maintained Kashmir’s semiautonomous status in the Indian union. Bhan will discuss how controlling vital Himalayan rivers fortifies Hindu reimaginings of Kashmiri territory while forcibly integrating the region into India’s extractive economy.
