Shatrunjay Mall


I am a specialist in modern transnational Asian history with a focus on both East Asia and South Asia. My research interests lie in twentieth-century cross-regional intellectual networks, Pan-Asianism, and histories of anti-colonialism and empire across Asia. My dissertation explores the engagements and interactions – intellectual, political, and cultural – between Indian anti-colonial figures and imperial Japan over the early to mid-twentieth centuries.
