  • Bombay Muslims: Diversity and Cosmopolitanism in Colonial India - ZSR Library Lecture Series

    Wednesday, November 11, 2015, 4:00PM
    ZSR Library Auditorium 404

    Sitting at the crossroads of the global Indian Ocean trade network, Bombay – now Mumbai – emerged as a pastiche of different ethnicities and religious groups – giving rise to and strengthening its cosmopolitan framework and outlook. Despite sporadic incidents of violence, the city continues to be seen as plural, diverse, and progressive. In its social, economic, and cultural make-up, the city’s Muslim inhabitants, particularly those belonging to the trading and mercantile classes, have played a critical role. Rahman’s research injects a historical perspective into the shaping up of the city as a cosmopolitan space and the role certain specific Muslim communities and figures played in it. This lecture is presented by Raisur Rahman, Associate Professor of the Department of History at Wake Forest. For more information, please visit zsr.wfu.edu/events/lectures
