SAHSA officers for 2013

Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to announce two new additions to SAHSA's governing body for 2013.  Please note that as we received only one nomination for incoming Vice-President there will be no election this year.

Neilesh Bose, who is Assistant Professor at North Texas University, will be SAHSA's Vice-President in 2013 and President in 2014.  Neilesh works on the literary and cultural history of Bengali Muslims around the turn of the 20th century

Faisal Chaudhry, who is ACLS new faculty fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, will be SAHSA's Secretary-Treasurer.  Faisal's research focuses on South Asian legal history, and his background in law will be crucial as SAHSA files for non-profit status next year.

Best wishes,
