South Asia Center Presents: Gender and Sexuality in Mughal India: Historical Narratives, Medicine and Juriprudence by Poonam Deol

Deol’s talk will explore two types of discourses—medicine and Islamic jurisprudence—to examine gender and sexuality in Mughal India. By examining these discourses within conventional historical narratives, she hopes to better understand the ways in which femininity is constructed.

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.
