Place of Knowledge : Education and Urban History in Rampur

Khan, Razak GND

This paper examines the educational and urban history of Muslims in Rampur from its princely past to its post-colonial present as it moved from the centre to the margin. The paper examines the intertwined histories of the transformation of education and urban inequality and also highlights alternative histories from the ‘Muslim ghetto’, providing an entry point into ‘marginal’ archives and histories. It does so by focusing on trajectories of madrasa education and Urdu print culture and mapping them onto the histories of education and urban inequality in contemporary Rampur.
