Personal profile


I am a History PhD student interested in famine, disease, philanthropy and emotion in South Asia. My undergraduate thesis, 'Nationalist sentiment and the South Indian Famine of 1876-1878', traced the links between the collective experience of famine and the economic discourse of nationalism by introducing 'affective nationalism'. I stayed in Manchester to complete a History MA, where I wrote a dissertation on the Servants of India Society's philanthropic involvement in famine relief. I'm currently working on a PhD entitled 'Famines, Epidemics and Emotions in Colonial India, 1871-1921' supervised by Professor Anindita Ghosh and Doctor Aditya Ramesh.
