Abstract

This special double issue brings together papers presented at the 25th anniversary BASAS conference, which was held at the University of Southampton in April 2011. ‘Bodies of Power, Forms of Power: South Asia through History and Across Disciplines’ was the conference theme. With generous support from the British Academy, the conference brought together senior and junior academics from South Asia and beyond to join the commemorative event. The contributors to the special issue come from varying disciplines and adopt a range of methods through which to explore how power is understood, endorsed and contested in everyday lives and at fraught moments of South Asia's history.
