The Routledge Handbook of Critical Kashmir Studies signals the increasing significance of Critical Kashmir Studies scholarship within the context of India’s heightened Hindu fascism and policies of settler colonial displacement, disenfranchisement, and dispossession in Kashmir. The handbook promotes transformative paradigms in and about Kashmir by bringing together rising and established scholars from Kashmir and across the global north and south in the ongoing project of producing interdisciplinary scholarship within a transnational and intersectional framework. Taken together, the chapters advance anti-colonial/decolonial, feminist, anti-occupation, and anti-caste frameworks to destabilize the structures of knowledge production associated with entrenched forms of hegemonic power, inside and outside of the academy, that have shaped the field of Kashmir studies for decades. The chapters question how dominant processes and imaginaries have served institutionalized power and normalized domination, with implications for Kashmiri lives and futures.
