About Me

https://tseguragarcia.com/

I am a historian of Modern South Asia, with a broad interest in the social and cultural history of colonial India in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I am particularly interested in gender, visual culture, and the body and its practices.

In 2016 I was awarded a PhD in History from the University of Cambridge, with a dissertation on the global connections of the Indian princely state of Baroda.

In 2017 I obtained a Juan de la Cierva Postdoctoral Fellowship (Government of Spain, 2017) at my current academic home: the Department of Humanities at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona. At UPF, besides working on my research, I teach modern global history at the undergraduate and graduate levels and I co-convene the seminar of the Research Group on Empires, Metropoles and Extra-European Societies (GRIMSE).

As a postdoctoral researcher, I have held visiting fellowships at the Department of History at Brown University (CASA Fellowship, 2018) and at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, New Delhi (ICAS:MP Postdoctoral Fellowship, 2016).
