South Asia Center and the Department of Art and Music Histories Present: "Translating India in Image and Text: The Gentil Album of 1774" by Chanchal Dadlani

Dadlani’s presentation addresses artistic encounters between India and France in the early modern period. In particular, she interprets the GentilAlbum in relation to multiple systems of artistic and epistemological production, including the manuscript tradition of the Indo-Persian world and the broader network of European artists, scholars, and patrons active in eighteenth-century India.

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.
