Mridu Rai


My specialization is in modern South Asian history. I read, write and teach the political, social, and cultural history of the region. My approach to teaching is based on recognizing the importance of a mutual dialogue between students and instructor as well as a collective interrogation of sources. My current book project is a longue durée history of Kashmir, beginning in the 6th century and drawing the story into the contemporary period.
