About: Arvind-Pal Mandair (and co-editor Cosmo Zene) provide an Introduction to this important collection of essays. The essays stem from a major conference that was organized by Arvind-pal Mandair and Cosimo Zene at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, between September 11th and 13th 2001.  The conference was memorable in more ways than one, not least because it looked at the issue of ‘dialogue’ between world cultures, but also because the first night of the evening as scholars were gathering for the event was overshadowed by the attacks on the Twin Towers on September 11th 2001.
