The South Asia Policy and Research Initiative (SAPRI) in collaboration with AdvoPak is delighted to host a discussion with Raza Rumi on his new book «Being Pakistani: Society, Culture and the Arts».

Date: 11th October, 2018
Location: Old North Student Lounge
Time: 6:00 PM

Raza Ahmad Rumi is a policy analyst, journalist and an author. He is Director Park Center for Independent Media, Ithaca College and Visiting Faculty at Cornell Institute for Public Affairs. Raza is also the editor, Daily Times (Pakistan). Over the years he has advised governments, non-profits and donors across Asia Pacific region.

His new book «Being Pakistani: Society Culture and the Arts» brings together a mosaic of varied essays on arts, literature and heritage of Pakistan and South Asia written over the last decade. The underlying theme is that local, folk cultures are much more resistant than what the architects of modern singular nationalisms assume.

We have two discussants for this session:
1) Dr. Mubbashir Rizvi, an Assistant Professor in Cultural Anthropology at Georgetown University. His research and teaching interests span social movements, environmental justice, postcolonial militarization and decolonization. His forthcoming book, The Ethics of Staying: Social Movements and Land Rights in Pakistan, examines the rise of land rights movement that challenged the Pakistani establishment.
2) Bilal Qureshi, a radio journalist and cultural critic exploring the intersection of international politics, identity, and art. His essays have appeared in the New York Times, Newsweek, and the Washington Post.

We will have a few copies at the event but if you want to purchase it beforehand, please use this amazon link:
