(p.1) 1 Introduction
Jews and Muslims in South Asia

Yulia Egorova

Oxford University Press

The chapter outlines the research questions to be explored in the book and reflects on the main bodies of academic literature that the discussion subsequently draws on. It suggests that the book uses the South Asian context to pursue two separate but co-dependent strands of analysis, as it both focuses on the conceptual relationship between notions of Jewishness and meanings assigned to being Muslim on the subcontinent, and explores the diverse incarnations of interactions that could be broadly described under the rubric of Jewish-Muslim relations, putting the growing literature on this topic in dialogue with academic interventions interrogating anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and their overlapping histories.

Keywords:   Jews, Muslims, South Asia, race, religion, minorities, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia
