Handbook of Critical Kashmir Studies presents  emerging critical knowledge frameworks and perspectives that foreground  situated histories and resistance practices to challenge colonial and  postcolonial forms of governance and state building. It politicizes  discourses of nationalism, patriotism, democracy, and liberalism, and it  questions how these dominant globalist imaginaries and discourses serve  institutionalized power, create hegemony, and normalize domination. In  doing so, the handbook situates Critical Kashmir Studies scholarship  within global scholarly conversations on nationalism, sovereignty,  indigenous movements, human rights, and international law.

The handbook is organized into the following five parts:

  • Territories, Homelands, Borders
  • Militarism, Humanism, Occupation
  • Memories, Futures, Imaginations
  • Religion, History, Politics
  • Armed Conflict, Global War, Transnational Solidarities

A  comprehensive reference work documenting and consolidating the growing  Critical Kashmir Studies scholarship, this handbook will be of interest  to scholars of anthropology, political science, cultural studies, legal  and sociolegal studies, sociology, history, critical Indigenous studies,  settler colonial studies, and feminist studies.
