Taneja of Vanderbilt University analyzes modes of multiple temporality and the persistent connection of Islam to the pre-colonial elsewhen in the dreamscapes and landscapes of contemporary north India.  In each of these modes, ruins hold open ethical potential, the possibility of transformation of current states of affairs for both individuals and communities.
