This panel will examine the importance of inter-maslak identities among South Asian Muslims historically and at the present time. Maslak—Deobandi, Barelwi, and Ahl-i Hadith, among others—is the term commonly used by Sunni Muslims to distinguish between different ulama-led groups. Having originated in the late nineteenth century during British colonial rule, the groups that self-identify as such appear to have hardened in their self-affirmation and hostility toward rival maslaks in postcolonial South Asia.

Midwest Labor and Working Class History Colloquium
“Labor Mobilizations and Movements: From the Local to the Global”
University of Memphis
June 2, 2017
Midwest Labor and Working Class History Colloquium organizers are currently soliciting papers for the 2017 colloquium. We welcome scholars from any discipline interested in presenting on a topic that broadly fits under the theme. The colloquium is open to scholars, public historians, graduate students, and activists presenting on contemporary and historical topics.
We are currently seeking literature scholars interested in presenting a paper on Anthony Burgess at the The Midwest Conference on British Studies. Our panel proposal is as follows:
A central theme within anthropology is concerned with understanding the nature, scope, and meaning of human difference. Given our emphasis on qualitative, quantitative, and holistic approaches to the study of humankind, anthropologists are equipped to comment on the contexts that shape human experience.
Over the centuries, the historical events of the Reformation movement, tentatively dated to have started in 1517 Wittenberg, have acquired additional meanings. Later generations developed the Reformation into a model, metaphor or ideal, through which they detached ‘Reformation’ from its immediate historical context and made it either a process or a principle. As a process, ‘Reformation’ was meant to be continued, updated, re-evaluated, and even emulated in new contexts.
