MA in History, Utah State University



British Empire, Colonial India, Hindu History, Religion and Law, Sectarian Histories and Politics


I'm interested in the social, cultural, legal and religious history of colonial India. Specifically, I look at religion, sectarian politics and law in the period of anti-colonial nationalism. 

I completed my BA in History at the University of Oxford (2015), spent 9 months studying Indian languages in India (2016), and graduated with an MA in History from Utah State University (2018), where my MA Thesis focused on low-caste religious leadership.
