Gandhi- King Lecture Featuring Dr. Ajailiu Niumai
Start Date: 6/12/2014Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 6/12/2014End Time: 8:30 PM

Event Description:
The northeast region of India is resource-rich, boasting strong industries in tea, crude oil and natural gas, and silk. At the same time, it is burdened with a poor infrastructure and conflict-scarred by insurgents, two of its key social and cultural differences from mainstream India.

Why are the people in this troubled region marginalized from the rest of the country? What can be done to transform the states, now plagued by guns, drugs and rebels?

Ajailiu Niumai, Raman Post-Doctoral Fellow and a visiting scholar in the Department of Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies at the University of Iowa will present “Strengthening Connections with Northeast India” at 7 p.m., June 12, in G21 of the Ming Hsieh Hall on West Virginia University’s downtown campus.

The talk, which is part of the Gandhi-King Lecture Series on International Relations and Peace Studies, is free and open to the public.
