Research Description

My research interests include the history of radical movements, print cultures and processes of production, and race and labor relations in East Africa during the colonial and postcolonial periods. I am interested primarily in movements with heterodox or syncretic ideological orientations, particularly those with affinities to Islam, Sikhism, Socialism and Anarchism and how such movements speak to broader histories of interaction in the Indian Ocean World. My current work focuses on exposing the transnational linkages that tie Kenyan Indian radicals into both regional and global webs of radical networks, and the ways in which these linkages manifest in both the material and ideological planes.
