South Asia Center Presents: Carol M. Babirack "Turns on a Carpet": Ethnographic Fiction as Activist Scholarship How might ethnography be turned to fiction and ethnographic fiction turned to activism? Carol Babiracki explores these questions through a short work of her own ethnographic fiction, which she proposes as a strategic intervention in the discourse about local, professional women entertainers in India today.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
