Invitation to a Conference

The Princeton University Press book with my article in it is out. Barbara Metcalf passed around her one and only advance copy at the conference.

My paper – Chapter 12 – is all of 5 pages long: “Sufi Ritual Practice among the Barkatiyya Sayyids of U.P.: Nuri Miyan’s Life and Urs, Late Nineteenth – Early Twentieth Centuries.”
