Visiting Assistant Professor of History and Postdoctoral Fellow in Asian StudiesKirner-Johnson 132
Pankhuree Dube, a historian of modern South Asia, spent four and a half years doing archival research and ethnographic fieldwork in central India.
At Hamilton, Dube teaches students about how indigenous communities historically adapted to maintain the ecological balance. Her research suggests that such histories are of particular significance for our time as we adjust to conditions of mass extinction, scarcity, and a deepening environmental crisis.
Research for Dube’s current book project has received support from the Social Science Research Council, Association of Asian Studies, and American Institute of Indian Studies. She has published in The Historian, Cultural Studies, and Contemporary South Asia. Her article for Social History is forthcoming.
