Online Seminar: “Sheikh Mujib: Icon of postcolonial liberation”
December 3, 2020 - 15:00-16:30
SASNET invites you to a digital seminar on the occasion of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s 100th anniversary, post-colonial leader and the founder of Bangladesh.
The speakers will also present Anisur Rahman’s book Jag är Sheikh Mujib. Bengali-Swedish author Rahman’s epic monologue I Am Sheikh Mujib depicts the twentieth century freedom struggle on the Indian subcontinent through the voice of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman – from British colonial times to the first tentative years of independent Bangladesh under his leadership. Along the way, this political struggle was to a large extent also about the right to one’s own language.
