Acclaimed scholar of history, gender and colonialism Tanika Sarkar is the focus of this year’s Salon Series, which offers an opportunity to dive into the implications of scholarly texts that make a critical intervention in their field. A diverse group of historians and scholars respond to Sarkar’s latest work, which explores the relations among law, personhood, and Hindu idioms of “entangled selves” in colonial India. Tanika Sarkar is the Dahwan Visiting Professor of South Asian History at Yale University, and professor of History at Jawaharlal Nehru University. Her previous works include Hindu Wife, Hindu Nation: Community, Religion, and Cultural Nationalism; and Rebels, Wives, Saints: Designing Selves and Nations in Colonial Times. Joining Professor Sarkar are Neferti Tadiar, professor of women’s studies at Barnard College, Anupama Rao, associate professor of history at Barnard College, and other scholars to be announced.
