Phillip B Wagoner

Phillip B. Wagoner is a professor of Art History and Archaeology at Wesleyan University, Connecticut, USA. His research focuses on the cultural history of the Deccan region of South India, primarily in the late medieval and early modern periods (1200-1600). His primary interest is in the historical interactions between the region’s established Indic culture and the Persianate culture that arrived when the Delhi Sultanate annexed the region in the early fourteenth century. Dr. Wagoner‘s authored books include Tidings of the King: a Translation and Ethnohistorical Analysis of the Rayavacakamu (University of Hawai’i Press, 1993), Power, Memory, Architecture: Contested Sites on India’s Deccan Plateau, 1300-1600 (Oxford:New Delhi, co-authored with Richard M.
