Join us in March 2020 at Connecticut College for a presentation by Dean Accardi titled, “India, Pakistan, and the War over Kashmir.” A reception begins at 5:30 p.m., with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m.

Accardi is an Assistant Professor of History at Connecticut College. Accardi is a historian of gender and religion in South Asia and the Islamic World. He is interested in the connections between religious and political practices, institutions and discourses in the early modern and modern world. His research focuses on the gendered ascetic practices of saints revered by both Hindus and Muslims and their use to establish and articulate religious and political power.

His research and teaching highlight how historical and religious narratives constantly reconstruct and deploy the past to serve particular socio-political agendas. His research and teaching also reexamine notions of mutually exclusive religions, hybridity, and syncretism and reconceptualizes relationships between religions and other social and cultural phenomena.
