Research

The Afro-Asian Networks project which Carolien Stolte co-directs with PI Su Lin Lewis has resulted in a Manifesto (Radical History Review 2018), which highlights the multiple modes of internationalism by which Asian and African actors navigated and subverted the power dynamics of the early Cold War. Two special issues are forthcoming in the Journal of World History (2019) and the Journal of Social History (2019). The project can also be followed through its blog and twitter feed . Carolien continues working on these themes through her current VENI-funded project "Southern Crossings", which focuses on Indian trade unionists, peace activists, and feminists in the Afro-Asian movement.
