South Asia and the Institute: Transformative Connections

Friday, October 14, 2022 at 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Maigaugen Gallery 14N-130

Join us for the exhibition launch of the South Asia and the Institute: Transformative Connections at MIT’s Maihaugen Gallery! Researched by current MIT faculty, students, alumni and staff, this historical exhibit tells the remarkable story of South Asia at MIT and MIT in South Asia to honor the determination and grit of multiple generations of South Asians at MIT. We celebrate their far-reaching accomplishments, technical expertise, and ingenuity that have made significant contributions to the advancement of knowledge at MIT and life beyond the institute, in South Asia, the United States and across the world. It also highlights the ways in which MIT’s past and present have been shaped by histories of immigration and race in America, decolonization and nation-building in South Asia, and globalization & technological revolutions across the world. This opening will be a celebration complete with performances by student groups MIT Ohms, MIT Nyitri and MIT Bhangra and light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
