Muslims in India


A lecture at the 1 credit mini course Muslims in a Global Context: Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, by Dr. Nico Slate, Assistant Professor, Department of History, Carnegie Mellon University

Nico Slate’s research and teaching focus on the transnational history of social movements in the United States, with a particular emphasis on South Asia and on the history of struggles against racism and imperialism worldwide. His first book, “Colored Cosmopolitanism: The Shared Struggle for Freedom in the United States and India” (Harvard University Press, 2012), argues that South Asians and African Americans learned from each other in ways that not only advanced their respective struggles for freedom, but also helped define what freedom could and should mean.
