Comparative Imperial History
Thematically, my research interests include the history of Indian indenture, and its intersections with labor, race, gender, diasporic Indian culture, colonialism, and empire. Geographically, I focus on how South Asia and the Indian Ocean world connect to broader global histories of migration, labor, and culture. I approach these topics mainly through legal documentation and debates, transportation and labor infrastructure, and print culture in the Indian Ocean British colonies between 1840 and 1920.
