Mubbashir Rizvi: 2021 AIPS Book Prize Winner

The American Institute of Pakistan Studies (AIPS) announced Mubbashir Rizvi as the winner of their annual AIPS Book Prize.

The 2021 award went to Dr. Mubbashir Rizvi for his book "The Ethics of Staying: Social Movements and Land Rights Politics in Pakistan" (Stanford University Press, 2019). Buy the book from Stanford University Press here.

The AIPS Book Prize Committee commented that the book has "significant potential to draw other scholars and students to Pakistan Studies as it engages with several fields, including social movement theory, subaltern studies, moral economics, and science and technology studies...Rizvi argues convincingly for the importance of his study’s focus on Punjab, a province that otherwise possesses a monolithic grasp on the Pakistani national imaginary. Although in many ways a standard ethnography, Rizvi gives voice to the AMP’s stories. In doing so, it connects rural with urban and NGOs. The overall effect is to change the way of looking at the region."

Congratulations to Mubbashir Rizvi!
