120 - Retrieving the 1950s as a Transitional Moment in India’s Foreign and Domestic Policy

Location: Silveroak II, Ground Floor

The 1950s was a crucial decade for the negotiation of decolonization in Asia and for the foundation of new states in the region. In the case of India, while recent historical scholarship has started to retrieve this history, rigorous accounts of the genesis of an Indian state and of its foreign policy are still lacking on many of their aspects. The opening up of Indian archives and the development of digital techniques for contemporary history have helped scholars trace the transformations of the Indian political narrative on the global stage and refine our understanding of the political possibilities but also conundrums that Indian policy-makers and thinkers explored and negotiated. This panel invites papers that consider from a historical perspective the transition that this decade constituted for India in Asia and in the world.
