Please join the Rutgers Nation and Empire Working Group for an online lecture and Q&A with Dr. Taymiya Zaman, “Chasing India in Mexico City”. The event is sponsored by the Center for European Studies and the Rutgers British Studies Center. Dr. Taymiya Zaman is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of History at the University of San Francisco. She specializes in Mughal India with an emphasis on historical memory, life writing, and the transition from subjects to citizens in the Islamicate world. Dr. Zaman’s lecture uses her encounters as a Mughalist with Mexico City and its history to discuss transformation and survival in postcolonial spaces. A version of this lecture has recently been published in History and Theory (DOI 10.1111/hith.12227), and attendants are invited (though not required) to read the article before the lecture.
