Princes of the Mughal Empire, 1504-1719

For almost 200 years, the Mughal emperors ruled supreme in northern India. Using the figure of the Mughal prince, Dr. Faruqui offers a new interpretive lens through which to comprehend Mughal state formation. His work suggests that, far from undermining the foundations of empire, court intrigues and political backbiting actually helped spread, deepen, and mobilize Mughal power through an empire-wide network of friends and allies. However, because Mughal imperial and princely success were interlinked, they atrophied together in the late 1600s and early 1700s.

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.
