Stephanie Morin, a senior history and public relations major from Gorham, Maine, won the first-ever Centre for Non-Western Studies' best non-western essay prize last spring. In her paper, titled "Jinnah's Pakistan: the transformation of the communal problem in India to an international dilemma," Morin investigates the historiography surrounding the partition of India and emergence of modern Pakistan. Morin will present a 20-minute version of her paper, and Hall, who specializes in South Asia and South East Asian history, will then engage Morin's thesis and expand upon her findings.
The CNWS was established in 2009 to highlight and support inter-disciplinary research and teaching through a shared interest in non-western politics, culture and society. The Centre brings together a number of Huntington faculty in the fields of Bible and religion, business, English, history and political science, ministry, TESOL, social work and sociology.
