Barefoot Across the Nation is out!

27 Sep 2010

A new collection of essays about M. F. Husain, edited by Sumathi Ramaswamy and published by Routledge UK, is now available. My piece is on the public debates of Husain's work, and there are also essays by Sumathi Ramaswamy, Geeta Kapur, David Gilmartin and Barbara Metcalf, Ananya Jahanara Kabir, Veena Das, Ram Rahman, Tapati Guha-Thakurta, Kajri Jain, Susan S. Bean, and Bruce Lawrence, along with a forward by Monica Juneja.

M. F. Husain and his work were also the focus of a conference last week at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar. He also turned 95 this year. Happy Birthday, Husain Saheb!
