Khullar Awarded Cohn Book Prize

Sonal Khullar, Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Washington, receives the Bernard S. Cohn Book Prize at the annual conference of the Association for Asian Studies. The award was presented to her by AAS Past President Professor Mrinalini Sinha.

Professor Khullar’s book Worldly Affiliations: Artistic Practice, National Identity, and Modernism in India, 1930-1990 (University of California Press, 2015) was recognized by the AAS committee as an outstanding work in its field.

“Beautifully written, compellingly argued, Khullar’s book not only offers a major contribution to the study of Indian modernism, it also advances our methodological understanding of modern art at large. A vital addition to an exciting body of emerging art-historical scholarship that promises to fundamentally transform received ideas on modernism in the coming years.”—Iftikhar Dadi, Cornell University

“Provocatively argued, this book is a must-read for art students, critics, and all those who are interested in modern Indian art, as well as all concerned with global modernism.”—Partha Mitter, University of Sussex

The Bernard S. Cohn Book Prize each year honors outstanding and innovative scholarship across discipline and country of specialization for a first single-authored monograph on South Asia, published during the preceding year.

UW Prof Helps Pakistani Farmers Manage Water

Faisal Hossain, UW associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, is helping farmers in Pakistan learn how to use NASA satellite data to better manage water supplies. Hossain said “Satellites up in space looking at how much water we have underground, in rivers or in the atmosphere are providing routine observations that can help policymakers and on-the-ground managers make informed decisions. From offering improved flood forecasting to indicating areas where groundwater resources are threatened, freely available satellite data can be an invaluable resource, particularly in dev
eloping countries.”
