Marginality and Historiography

The Case of Kashmir’s History

A slightly different and shorter form of this paper was presented by Amit Kumar at an international conference, “Diversity, Margins and Dialogue: Local, National and Translational Cultures,” held at University of Pune from 2 to 4 February 2014. We are particularly grateful to the anonymous referees of EPW for their observations and insightful criticisms. To Charu Gupta and the late M S S Pandian, who have gone through different versions of this paper, we owe much more than a mere thanks. We thank Nawaz Qul Qanungo and Justin Matthew for their insightful comments on this paper. Arpita Chakraborty remains a source of strength, encouragement and intellectual insights. This paper is hers as much as it is ours.
