Our second 'India in Focus' seminar will be presented by Dr Ruth Gamble, DECRA Research Fellow | Department of Archaeology and History, La Trobe University

China and India fought a war over their unresolved Himalayan border in 1962. Nearly sixty years later, this border remains unresolved, and the effects of the ongoing dispute over it can be felt in the whole region’s geopolitics, ecologies, cultures, and, increasingly, technologies. This seminar will present a political ecological analysis of the war’s causes, events, and aftermaths, and use the past to suggest what the region’s bifurcated future may hold.


The 'India in Focus' seminar series will highlight India related research at La Trobe University from all disciplines, allowing conversation and analysis on specialised topics with academics and experts.

You can choose to join us for one, two or more seminars on India.

Each seminar will have a 45 min presentation followed by 15 min Q&A.
