    An elegy for nīti politics as a secular discursive field in the indian old régime.Velcheru Narayana Rao & Sanjay Subrahmanyam - 2008 - Common Knowledge 14 (3):396-423.
    The essay reflects in an elegiac mode on a now largely forgotten (or effaced) body of literature from precolonial India regarding the art and business of politics. This body, known as nīti, has classical roots in Sanskrit but came in particular to be popular in peninsular India between the thirteenth and the eighteenth centuries in vernacular languages such as Telugu, Kannada, and Marathi. Secular and this-worldly in orientation, it can be broadly contrasted to the far better known body of texts (...)

    4. a pragmatic response1.Velcheru Narayana Rao, David Shulman & Sanjay Subrahmanyam - 2007 - History and Theory 46 (3):409-427.
    In the years since its twin publication in 2001 and 2003 , Textures of Time has attracted a great deal more attention outside the United States than in the American academy. This, we suggest, is because its ideas and approach are rather at odds with the dominant trends in the area of “postcolonial studies.” In this response to three critical essays that engage with the book—by Rama Mantena, Sheldon Pollock, and Christopher Chekuri—we begin by setting out our principal hypotheses as (...)

    Intertwined histories: Crónica and tārīkh in the sixteenth‐century indian ocean world1.Sanjay Subrahmanyam - 2010 - History and Theory 49 (4):118-145.
    This essay reflects on the future of world history by reflecting on its past. It looks to how Iberian historiography in the early modern period “rediscovered” Islamic historiography in the course of Portuguese expansion into the Indian Ocean region in the sixteenth century. However, since the Iberians had deliberately cultivated a form of amnesia regarding this historiography as a result of the so-called Reconquest, new modes and methods of appropriation had to be found. Further, whereas medieval contact had largely been (...)

    Introduction: From scratch.Miguel Tamen, Wayne Andersen, Velcheru Narayana Rao, Sanjay Subrahmanyam, Ingrid D. Rowland, J. Paul Hunter & Yoke-Sum Wong - 2008 - Common Knowledge 14 (3):380-383.
    The essay discusses the presumption of one's singularity, the uniqueness of one's time, the picturesqueness of one actions, and the capacity of human beings, whether corporately or individually, to begin everything or indeed anything again from scratch. Such presumptions are indeed present in some varieties of contemporary fanaticism, but, more to the point, it is suggested that the feeling of doing something for the first time is the oldest feeling in the world.

    Historical teleologies in the modern world.Henning Trüper, Dipesh Chakrabarty & Sanjay Subrahmanyam (eds.) - 2015 - London: Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc.
    Historical Teleologies in the Modern World tracks the fragmentation and proliferation of teleological understandings of history--the notion that history had to be explained as a goal-directed process--in Europe and beyond throughout the 19th and into the 20th century. Historical teleologies have profoundly informed a variety of other disciplines, including modern philosophy, natural history, literature, humanitarian and religious philanthropism, the political thought and practice of revolution, emancipation, imperialism, colonialism and anti-colonialism, the conceptualization of universal humankind, and the understanding of modernity in (...)
