South Asia Without Borders Seminar
Hasit Shah, Research Affiliate, Harvard South Asia Institute
Chair: Sunil Amrith, Mehra Family Professor of South Asian Studies at Harvard University
When Prince passed away in April 2016, at the age of just 57, many people felt profound sadness at the loss of an artist whose performative genius was such that people from all backgrounds and lifestyles felt included in his world. SAI Research Affiliate Hasit Shah – journalist, Londoner and Prince fan – explores the connections between a group of second-generation British South Asians and a musician they too claimed as one of their own.
This event was originally scheduled for February 6.
