From the H-Net Job-Guide:
I am looking for fellow material culture historians, historical archaeologists, cultural historians, or world historians to form a panel for the University of Wisconsin-Madison South Asia Conference. My own research deals with Gujarat and other port cities in the Indian Ocean context of the early modern period, and I am working on material culture from this era that depicts the cultural and ideological exchanges as evidence of close contact and syncretic cultural formations.
