BiographyI joined Tufts History Department in 2008 after finishing my dissertation at Harvard, and completing a Mellon postdoctoral fellowship at UCLA. My research is in South Asian and German history, and I am especially interested in transnational approaches and postcolonial approaches. Currently, I am finishing a manuscript on the global networks of Indian anti-colonialism, and entanglements with German philosophy, science and politics in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. My work brings to light a number of zones of intellectual and social interaction that emerged through the exercise of colonial power but that also surpassed the binary framework of colonialism, between German Orientalists and Indian scriptural scholars, between experimental and social scientists, and within Marxist and fascist circles.
I teach courses on South Asia in global context, modern South Asia, comparative anti-colonialism, modern European intellectual history, and modern Germany.
