Kashmir Syllabus: A list of sources for teaching and leaning about Kashmir. It foregrounds voice, histories, and aspirations of  people from within Kashmir, and moves beyond prior scholarship that often took securities studies approaches and thereby privileged the statist perspectives of India and Pakistan. This critical body of work on Kashmir allows for a lens into the broader study of the modern state, occupation, nationalism, sovereignty, militarization, social movements, resistance, human rights, international law, and self-determination.
