About Me

I am a social and cultural historian interested in domestic and familial space within the British colonial context. While western domestic space and interiors have received much historical attention in recent years, this has not extended into the colonial domestic space. My work lies within an interdisciplinary field of domestic studies, with the aim of assessing the role played by private domestic environments, and more public interiors in the formation of individual and group identities amongst the British in India.
