18CU1: OPS, Soch: Columbia Pakistan Symposium
Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 11:00AM
Since its inception in 2016, Soch: Columbia Pakistan Symposium has provided a
platform for intercultural and political dialogue. In 2017, under the theme
of Redefining Attitudes, the conference successfully hosted an array of
activists, artists, intellectuals and entrepreneurs who offered innovative
solutions and pertinent insights into challenges faced by Pakistan today.
Marking the 70th anniversary of the partition of the South Asian
subcontinent, this year’s conference provides an opportunity to reflect on
Pakistan’s issues with an eye on the past. By critically examining the
ideals upon which it was founded, we hope to explore if and how Pakistan has
lived up to the values that Jinnah had envisioned. Thus, Soch returns in 2018
under the theme ‘Rethinking Partition: the Quest for Jinnah’s Nation’.
