AMESALL Presents: "The Jew In The Crown" A Discussion with Aamir Mufti

Thursday, April 7, 2016 5:30 pm - 7 pm (Reception 5:30-6pm)

Pane Room, Alexander Library

Some of the most innovative and influential works in the humanities and the social sciences in the last two decades were those that cast "comparative perspectives on South Asia and the Middle East." Engaging Aamir Mufti's (UCLA) groundbreaking work in the comparative study of South Asia and the Middle East, beginning with Enlightenment in the Colony: The Jewish Question and the Crisis of Postcolonial Culture (Princeton, 2007), this discussion will focus on scholarship that typically goes beyond area studies models despite working within specific areas, and while displaying social scientific scrutiny, also frames larger historical and theoretical contexts of global, humanistic relevance.
