Manu Bhagavan (Professor of History, Hunter College) “Indian Foreign Policy and Global Change: Multilateralism from Nehru to Modi”

Professor Bhagavan is a specialist on modern India, focusing on the twentieth-century late-colonial and post-colonial periods, with particular interests in human rights, (inter)nationalism, and questions of sovereignty. His most recent book is the critically acclaimed The Peacemakers / India and the Quest for One World. Set against the backdrop of World War II, Indian independence and decolonization, and the Cold War, this international history is based on seven years of research in twenty archives on three continents. It tells the story of India’s quest to build consensus around the framework of human rights and to bridge the divisions between East and West.

A reception will follow Prof. Bhagavan's talk.

Co-sponsored with the United Nations Association of Connecticut and the Citizens for Global Solutions, Mansfield Chapter.
