South Asia Panel at the AHA

This is to bring your attention to a South Asia panel that might be easily overlooked because the region does not appear in the title of the panel.   This panel was unfortunately scheduled in conflict with the Mughal panels that SAHSA is sponsoring, but these are certainly worthwhile colleagues to support as well!
The panel is No. 246.
