‘Where Is My Story?’

Asked by victimized-survivors witness to political conflict and mass violence, this question reverberates across contemporary South Asia.

The importance of an archive that preserves these stories and the events that enframe them, emerges through sustained conversation with local civil society and survivors of political conflict in South Asia. These stories live in the past-present continuum and navigate erasure and memory, resistance and remembrance.
