Research interests

My research is located in the complex period of mid to late nineteenth century British India – a period wrought by the antagonistic societal clash in a hierarchical colonial power structure, between retaining tradition and pursuing modernity. I focus on British and Indian women’s writings – travelogues, periodicals, guidebooks, fiction – to explore how women's transracial gendered transactions operated in the colony. Women's socio-political lives, bodily agency, and their textual representations form a significant part of this era’s history. My research investigates women's Victorian and late colonial writing to assess British and Indian women’s perceptions of each other in nineteenth century India, with a special focus on the dressed body.

I am also interested in Victorian women's periodicals, women's colonial clothing culture, and the concurrent evolution of the New Woman across Britain and India.
