Abstract

This article examines the intersections and troubling disconnections between territorial space and political, cultural and communal identity in Indian and Pakistani Partition fictions. Concentrating particularly on the Urdu short-stories Sadat Hasan Manto (in English translation), it uses studies of 'border-lifecycles' to reflect on the real and imagined geographies of the Indo-Pakistani border after 1947.
