The first bi-annual issue is "Revisiting Dispossession and Loss in Kashmir."
Loss is emblematic of the violence that the land and bodies of Kashmiris have borne. The works in this issue discuss the inalienable, individual and collective processes of dispossession that the bodies of Kashmiris are subjected to.
In this issue, we revisit this subject with a sense of urgency to remember and document what this loss is, and has been, in a bid to preserve the memory of disenfranchisement.
These stories of loss and dispossession have been told as witnessed, understood and interpreted by 20 Kashmiri women.
