Dr. Aaron Mulvany holds Ph.D. in South Asian Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. His interests include music, anthropology, folklore, and history. He is the assistant professor of Social Development and Policy.
Dr. Aaron gave a lecture on water-related disasters, which is the field he holds great expertise in. He gave the whirlwind tour of the scientific (and pseudo-scientific) discourses on the Great Flood. The Great Flood, or Toofan-e-Nooh (literally: the Storm of Noah) as it is known in Islamic cosmology, was a supposedly universal disaster in which all of humankind, except for a few divinely selected individuals, was destroyed.
