Doctoral supervision

Supervision areas for Doctoral Studies 

While my published work so far relates to print, urban history, popular culture and social identity in colonial India, I am happy to supervise PhD students keen to research other themes in an imperial and/or colonial context. My most recent research is concerned with urban cultures and colonial cities.
