In the early 1400s, Iranian elites began migrating to the Deccan plateau of southern India. Lured to the region for many reasons, these poets, traders, statesmen, and artists of all kinds left an indelible mark on the Islamic sultanates that ruled the Deccan until the late seventeenth century. The result was the creation of a robust transregional Persianate network linking such distant cities as Bidar and Shiraz, Bijapur and Isfahan, and Golconda and Mashhad.

Iran and the Deccan explores the circulation of art, culture, and talent between Iran and the Deccan over a three-hundred-year period. Its interdisciplinary contributions consider the factors that prompted migration, the physical and intellectual poles of connectivity between the two regions, and processes of adaptation and response. Placing the Deccan at the center of Indo-Persian and early modern global history, Iran and the Deccan reveals how mobility, liminality, and cultural translation nuance the traditional methods and boundaries of the humanities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Presents meticulously documented and painstaking analysis of materials that traveled between Iran and the Deccan. This kind of work has been done for the Ottoman Empire and the Mughal Empire, but not yet for the Deccan and it will have a significant and lasting impact."-Deborah Hutton, author of Art of the Court of Bijapur

"Demonstrates the significance of the Deccan for the formation of Indo-Persian culture in a thoroughly interdisciplinary manner."-Ali Anooshahr, author of Turkestan and the Rise of Eurasian Empires
