Histories Of The Ephemeral
Historian of music and listening in Mughal India. Through stories about powerful courtesans, legendary maestros and captivated patrons I write of sovereignty and selfhood, friendship and desire, sympathy and loss, and power, worldly and strange as the Mughal empire gave way to British rule. My latest co-edited book is Monsoon Feelings: A History of Emotions in the Rain.
