Join us Tuesday, March 2 from 12–1 pm (EST) for the next Conversations on South Asia event with Nandini Chatterjee (History, University of Exeter).

This month, we’ll be discussing Chatterjee’s most recently published book, Negotiating Mughal Law: A Family of Landlords Across Three Indian Empires, which was published by Cambridge University Press in 2020 and is freely available as an open access book through Cambridge Open.

In the book, Chatterjee explores the textures, nuances, conflicts, and complications of Mughal law using an archive of legal documents and materials that she reconstructed from multiple sites and repositories in and beyond South Asia.

Dominic Vendell (History, University of Exeter) and Samira Sheikh (History, Vanderbilt University) will join us for this conversation.

Elizabeth Lhost (History Department, Society of Fellows, Dartmouth College) will moderate.
