Oxford possesses outstanding facilities for the study of all aspects of contemporary South Asia.
Until 2008, Oxford did not have a single centre for the study of contemporary South Asia. But it now has a Contemporary South Asian Studies Programme (CSASP) comprising: a post graduate taught course; visiting fellows; post doctoral researchers; a stream of workshops and conferences; research projects; seminars and collaborative outreach.
I began as an economist and then my job titles just got longer and longer.
I originally joined the Contemporary South Asian Studies Programme as a departmental lecturer in October 2010. In September 2017 I took up Oxford’s Associate Professorship in the International Relations of South Asia, divided between Area Studies and the Department of Politics and International Relations. I hold a Governing Body Fellowship at St Antony’s College and am Chair of the Board of Examiners for both the MSc and MPhil in Modern South Asian Studies.
