South Asia Seminar Series
Thu, January 29, 2009 • 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM • Meyerson Conference Room WCH 4.118
The SAI seminar series features lectures by distinguished South Asian specialists from UT and abroad. Regular seminars occur on Thursdays at 3:30 pm, preceded by a reception at 3:00 pm, in the Meyerson Conference Room (WCH 4.118)."My research interests focus on the social and cultural history of premodern India (1000-1800), and especially on the various interactions between the Islamic and Indian civilizations. I have published monographs on the social roles of Muslim mystics (Sufis) in the premodern period, as well as on the growth of Islam in Bengal. I am also actively teaching and writing about the growing subfield of world history."
