As documented previously - here, and here (here) - there is a great gathering of all South Asianists at UW-Madison every October. This will be gathering # 39. I have two panels - one of which is "Fractured Genres: The Afterlives of Medieval Indo-Persian Histories" and the other one "Blogs of War: The Analytical Terrain of the Af-Pak Blogosphere".
Rather related is this Greatest Video of All Times, courtesy of Mircea: Homi Bhabha + Katy Perry.
As usual, all of the South Asia panels are at the same time. And for good measure, you're cross-programmed against James Frey! Let me know when *your* book is an Oprah Book Club selection, much less a deselection....
I don't agree. As an Indian, I say that the greatest video of all time is this legendary take on Javed Miandad and Marshall in Fifty-Fifty.
dude, you're on the same panel as juan cole. that's pretty sweet.
