Crash Course: Akbar, Aurangzeb, and the Historian's Perspective

The good folks at at Crash Course have a delightful present for those interested in Mughal history! That's right, Akbar and Aurangzeb get the full Crash Course World History treatment. The video came out in time for the last lecture on Memory and History for my Islam in South Asia course and kicked off a great discussion on the historian's craft, history courses in the academy, and of course, the Mughals. I hope you guys enjoy!

The video is available here and is embedded below

(Errata: Aurangzeb was Akbar's great-grandson, not grandson)
