Scholarly Talk
Prof. Ruby Lal from Department of Middle Eastern and South Asian Studies, Emory University, delivered a lecture entitled “Feminist Landscapes: Teaching and Writing the History of India”. Professor Lal discussed the lives of nineteenth-century Indian women and the history of Mughal Empress Nur Jahan. She emphasised that gender studies provides a way of questioning the archive and reflecting on different viewpoints. Her interdisciplinary teaching and research experiences demonstrate that gender studies is more than an academic subject that encompasses lived experience and social development. The talk was chaired by Dr. David Schley from the History Department.
