Watch virtual launch of South Asia Archive and Revolution Papers

Watch the virtual launch of The South Asia Resource and Research Centre (SARRC) Archive and Revolutionary Papers (RP) Digital Teaching Tools.

The event took place on 1 November 2021 on Zoom.

SARRC is an archive of Pakistan’s socialist and democratic movements based near Islamabad. RP is a transnational collaboration exploring 20th century periodicals as forums of Left and anti-colonial thought.

Self-funded, volunteer-managed and compiled by political organiser and poet Ahmad Salim over a forty-year period, SARRC showcases magazines, newspapers, books and other materials produced by progressive struggles in Pakistan and South Asia. SARRC will launch a digital search catalogue and revamped physical library that makes its 45,000-strong collection available to scholars and organisers researching progressive histories in Pakistan and South Asia.

The cataloguing project is co-led by Ahmad Salim (SARRC) and Mahvish Ahmad (LSE, SARRC Trustee), and co-funded by the Modern Endangered Archives Program, UCLA and LSE Sociology.

The new online search catalogue giving access to radical archives in Pakistan is here:
