History-sponsored talks

This week the UH will host two visiting scholars.  Professors Ishita
Banerjee-Dube and Saurabh Dube of El Colegio de Mexico, both
interdisciplinary historians with a distinguished record of publications,
will present at a series of four events collectively titled "Marginality in
South Asia across the Disciplines."

We look forward to seeing everyone there, and please advertise widely (see
below and attached).  Individual fliers with abstracts will come soon.
Short readings will be available for the workshops later this week.  Please
contact Prof. Ned Bertz (bertz@hawaii.edu) to have the articles sent to you
