The October issue of Race & Class, ‘Memory and hope’, contains the views of Kashmiri scholars and activists on the country’s history and possibilities for peace and autonomy. Guest edited by anthropologist Shubh Mathur, the articles in this issue draw upon new voices and new research which have transformed understandings of the conflict, placing the Kashmiri experience centre stage, rather than the competing narratives of Indian and Pakistani territorial and nationalist ambitions.
