Seminar in South and Southeast Asian Studies: Islamicate South Asia

W 4-7pm
Faruqui, Munis D

Drawing on a broad cross-section of theoretical and methodological perspectives this graduate seminar will interrogate key historiographical debates that have shaped our understanding of the Muslim experience in S. Asia between 700 and 1750 AD. We will begin by engaging with Shahab Ahmed’s “What is Islam?”, Richard Eaton’s “India in the Persianate Age”, and Stephen Dale’s “The Muslim Empires of the Ottomans, Safavids and Mughals” before moving onto works by Finbarr Flood, Muzaffar Alam, Sanjay Subrahmanyam, Richard Eaton and Philip Wagoner, Nile Green, Supriya Gandhi, Sebastian Prange and Sunil Sharma, among others.
