Tuesday, December 3, 2013


  • Spent some of the morning surfing JSTOR for information on pre-1600 Rajput/Rajasthani feminine names, which resulted in reading/skimming the following:
    • Derryl N. MacLean, "Review of Living Without Silver by John S. Deyell", Pacific Affairs, Vol. 67, No. 1, Spring, 1994.
    • Stephen P. Blake, "Review ofLiving Without Silver, by John S. Deyell", Journal of Asian Studies Vol. 51, No. 4, Nov., 1992.
    • R. Burn, "Review of The Dynastic History of Northern India: Early Medieval Period. Vol. II by H. C. Ray", Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society No. 1, Jan., 1938.
    • J. Allan, "Review of The Dynastic History of Northern India: Early MediƦval Period. Vol. I by H. C. Ray", Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society No. 4, Oct., 1933.
    • E. G., "Review of India: Art and Culture, 1300-1900 by Stuart Cary Welch", Journal of the American Oriental Society, Vol. 115, No. 3.
    • Molly Emma Aitken, "Pardah and Portrayal: Rajput Women as Subjects, Patrons, and Collectors", Artibus Asiae> Vol. 62, No. 2, 2002; most of this is 17th-19th C, but it's still a very interesting discussion of when and how women were named.
    • Kashi N. Singh, "The Territorial Basis of Medieval Town and Village Settlement in Eastern Uttar Pradesh, India", Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Vol. 58, No. 2, Jun., 1968.
    • Sumit Guha, "Speaking Historically: The Changing Voices of Historical Narration in Western India, 1400-1900", The American Historical Review Vol. 109, No. 4 (October 2004); interesting, but again focusing on 17th C and later material.
    • Debarati Halder and K. Jaishankar, "PROPERTY RIGHTS OF HINDU WOMEN: A FEMINIST REVIEW OF SUCCESSION LAWS OF ANCIENT, MEDIEVAL, AND MODERN INDIA", Journal of Law and Religion, Vol. 24, No. 2, 2008-2009.


  • I need to finish up my PoV paper by the end of the year, and thus I'd like to have a decent working transcription/translation by then too. Having solicited some willing readers from the Med. Logic group on FB, I spent some time today trying to fill in holes before I send them what I've got. Made good progress.



  • Took Malink's book to the cafeteria and started reading it over a bowl of absolutely fantastic pumpkin-chili soup.
