Introduction: Reconsidering the Region in India
Leah Koskimaki and
Journal of South Asian Development, 2017, vol. 12, issue 2, 89-111
In this introduction to a special issue on â€˜Reconsidering the Region in Indiaâ€™, we aim to develop a synthetic and theoretically nuanced account of the multifarious ways in which the idea of region has been imbricated in diverse spatial, political, cultural and socio-economic configurations. We draw from various bodies of anthropological, geographic and historical literature to elaborate on three themes that we believe are central to understanding contemporary processes of region-making in India: trans-regional mobilities and connections; the actors who produce and perform regional imaginaries; and changing regional politics of development.
