Seminar with Ole Birk Laursen: "Anarchy or Chaos - M.P.T. Acharya and the Indian Struggle for Freedom"
A seminar with author and Lund University researcher Ole Birk Laursen on his recent biography about India's anti-colonial anarchist M.P.T. Acharya.
Join us for this Brown Bag Lunch Seminar with Ole Birk Laursen, the author of the recently published biography Anarchy or Chaos: M.P.T. Acharya and the Indian Struggle for Freedom – available throughout Europe, the United States, and India.
In this seminar, Birk Laursen will tell the story of M.P.T. Acharya, today regarded India’s most well-known anti-colonial anarchist of the early 20th century. It is a journey through the tumultuous political landscape of India during the fight for freedom and a time period marked by significant global events, including World War I, the Russian Revolution, the rise of Nazi power, the emergence of fascism, and Indian independence.
Anarchy or Chaos is not only an attempt to tell the intriguing life story about M.P.T. Acharya, but also to broaden the understanding of anarchism among fellow researchers of anti-colonialism and history of anarchism, adding to theories that still often are European-centered.
