His peer-reviewed articles are published or forthcoming from The Muslim World, Modern Asian Studies, Critical Research on Religion, and South Asia: The Journal of South Asian Studies. In May 2014, he convened an interdisciplinary conference here at Northwestern titled, "Imagining the Public in Colonial India," with support from the Buffett Center's Equality, Development and Globalization Studies (EDGS) grant.
