The tenth annual NYU Global South Asia conference theme is “Justice on the Move.”  The conference will be held at the Institute for Public Knowledge (20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor), on 23-24 February, 2018.  We will be focusing from a range of perspectives on interactions of justice and movement in South Asia, where the term “movement” evokes both mobility and mobilization, at many levels of scale, from the local to global. Justice struggles are ever present in South Asia, from social movements to legislative assemblies, court rooms to street protests, class rooms to NGO debates, newspapers to film, public and private, inside and outside the domains of official politics, audible in some registers and faint in others. In bringing together justice and movement, we want to foreground how justice travels within and across borders in and around South Asia, as ideas and ideals, as repertoires of practice, as solidarities and antagonisms, as expertise and professionalized networks. We want to approach this topic not only as a window into South Asia today, but also with historical and comparative perspectives.
