The IRCPL at Columbia University, New York, USA is sponsoring a two day workshop on ‘Religion, conflict and accommodation in Indian history: the medieval period’ on September 28-29, 2012. This year’s workshop will focus on the medieval period – and the focus of the discussions will be mainly on the developing complexities of the relations between Islamic communities and power centers and their Hindu counterparts.

Papers will analyze how Sufi orders generated specific forms of cosmopolitanism in Mughal India, intellectual exchanges and dialogues between Muslim and Hindu groups and narrative communities, complexities of the relations of power, and related issues. For more information, visit the website.
