Writing the Mughal Empire: The Memoirs of Babur

The British Library is hosting a lecture on the Baburnama, rare manuscripts that help question the one-sided cultural exchange between Europe and Islamic worlds. The Baburnama are the memoirs of Zahiruddin Muhammad Babur, founder of the Mughal Empire in India. The lecture will challenge the Eurocentric perspective on the memoirs and examine their function as a narrative of empire building.
