Project SummaryPartition's First Generation Oral History Project reexamines the 1947 Indian partition through the remembered experiences of the subcontinent's Muslims. Oral histories were recorded in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh from former students of the Aligarh Muslim University. The individuals whose stories were recorded shared experiences of having been educated in the Aligarh Muslim University and/or Aligarh Women's College, located about 90 miles southeast of New Delhi. Historically, both institutions were key sites in the development of Indian Muslim identity and became sites of pro-Pakistan activism in the 1930s and 40s. This project was formerly known as Sites of Disturbance: Oral History and Memories of Partition Oral History.
