  4. Panel Title: "Recent Historiography on the Ottoman, Safavid, and Mughal Empires"

    Panelists:
    Cemal Kafadar, Harvard University

    Rajeev Kinra, Northwestern University

    Kathryn Babayan, University of Michigan

    Recorded at the NEH Forum: "Beyond Golden Age and Decline: The Legacy of Muslim Societies in Global Modernity" (March 14-15, 2011)

    As part of a scholarly project awarded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Center for Global Islamic Studies gathered a two day long scholarly forum with the participation of over 30 world and Islamic historians to confront commonly accepted readings of Islamic history between the 14th and 20th centuries.

    Focusing on the history of Ottoman, Safavid and Mughal empires, scholars presented their recent research on this misunderstood era of Islamic histories and challenged current paradigms of study. A public web page (muslimmodernities.org) was designed specially for this conference, where detailed information about participating scholars and paper presentations are available.
