Project Title: 
Colonial Memories: Public History of the British Raj in Postcolonial South Asia
Project Abstract: 
I seek funding in order to conduct pre-dissertation research in New Delhi, India, over the winter break of 2016-2017. My research examines the production, marketing, and reception of memorials, monuments, and museum exhibits which commemorate the nationalist and independence movements of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. During this trip, I meet with archivists and museum professionals in order to discuss and view relevant holdings.
