The 1947 partition of India devastated the region, engulfing it in violence and the largest, forced migration of the 20th century. The impact was felt immediately by the two new nation-states – Pakistan and India – but the longer-term legacies have been more significant. 

70 years later, India and Pakistan appear to be as polarised as ever, and religious nationalism has revived. Focusing on Punjab, Dr Pippa Virdee, Senior Lecturer in Modern South Asian History at De Montfort University examines the ways in which the nation-states have re-imagined the region post-partition to create new histories and myths about the past.
