Accepting PhD Students
Possible supervision topics I am happy to discuss offering postgraduate supervision topics relating to the history of race, science and empire within the British Empire. I would be especially interested in working with students interested in display and visual culture, racial theory, extinction and Black and South Asian histories of Britain. If you are interested in working on South Asia, in the first instance please contact my colleague Manu Sehgal. If you are interested in African history, please consult the website for the Department of African Studies and Anthropology to find suitable supervisors.
