LSS: Prashant Kidambi: Cricket as Religion: Politics of sport in colonial India

Description: Prashant Kidambi

Cricket as Religion, the Religion of Cricket: The politics of sport in colonial India

Prashant’s talk is about a cricket tournament called the Bombay Pentangular, which was played on the lines of religious identity in the early twentieth century. Sport here serves as a prism through which one can understand the nature of colonialism and its impact on the making of social identities.

Prashant is Associate Professor in Colonial Urban History at the University of Leicester
