About Voices of Partition:
Associate Professor Kathleen Mulligan collaborated with theatre director David Studwell, alumna Sarah Morrisette (Hebert-Johnson) '13, and the members of Theatre Wallay in Islamabad on the Voices of Partition (VOP) project. VOP is funded by a U.S. Embassy grant and the Fulbright Specialist program. It focuses on the personal stories of survivors of the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947: the largest mass migration in modern history, and one in which over one million lives were lost. The project is both an attempt to preserve these stories before a generation of survivors is lost, and also educate people in our own country about a world event that has and continues to have enormous ramifications.
