Swati Chawla Helps Train New RAs

Thursday, February 22, 2018

UVa History grad student Swati Chawla will be assisting with Spring RA training on Friday! She'll be speaking on the subject: "Answering 'Where are you From?': Lessons from Modern South Asia." Swati will draw upon her research on citizenship in modern South Asia to lead a workshop that will help new RAs to understand the importance of itinerancy in the construction of the nation-state, and to reflect on the implications of our response to the commonplace inquiry: “Where are you from?”
