History Off Center: Writing from the Margins of Empire

Allison Busch, Associate Professor, Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies, Columbia University

Chair: Parimal Patil, Professor of Religion and Indian Philosophy, Chair of the Department of South Asian Studies, Harvard University

The historiography of the Mughal Empire (1526-1857) has traditionally been the monopoly of specialists who work on Persian documents. Professor Busch shows how the use of new archives, particularly the literary genres written in classical Hindi that are her specialty, brings new domains of early modern experience—political, social, and religious—into view. She is especially interested in precolonial visions of power, justice, and community.

Co-sponsored with the Department of South Asian Studies at Harvard University
