Architecture and the Politics of Space in South Asia

UCL Geographers at BASAS Conference

Architecture and the Politics of Space in South Asia

This year’s Annual Conference of the British Association of South Asian Studies (BASAS), held at Royal Holloway College on 2-4 April 2014, took as its theme, South Asia and its wider worlds. This aimed to address the diverse ways in which trends and developments in South Asia interact with the wider context in which the region is located.

 

In a panel on Architecture and the Politics of Space,  convened by UCL Geographers Dr Pushpa Arabindoo and Dr Tariq Jazeel, papers were presented by Tariq, on Architecture and Auroville: modernity, modernism and the aesthetic politics of utopianism, Pushpa, on The politics of global architecture in India, and by colleague Dr Claire Dwyer, on South Asian religious architecture in the diaspora: recreation and reinvention.

The panel was chaired by Dr Edward Simpson from SOAS and the session also included Dr Deborah Sutton, from Lancaster University, on Inhabited pasts: the politics of space and urban monuments in Delhi.
