Wednesday 17 November – Tryst with destiny: the path to independence in India
About this lecture
Start time: 2.15pm
Lecturer: Dr Erica Wald
On 15 August 1947, India and Pakistan achieved their independence from Britain, ending nearly 200 years of British rule on the Subcontinent. Independence, with partition, was the result of many years of hard-fought struggles and came at enormous cost to both newly independent countries. This webinar examines the rise of Indian nationalism, tracing its trajectory from an elite-led group to a mass movement. It considers the global political and economic factors which shaped both nationalist demands and British response.
