What Islamic History (in India) says about "History"?
This talk concerns the construction and production of Persian historiography in India during the medieval period. It considers debates about the knowledge of history in the broader intellectual milieu developing across the Middle East and South Asia in the 13th and 14th centuries. Finally, it attempts to confront broader challenges in the writing of Islamic history in relation to myth and religion.
