'Belsen Without the Gas Chambers': the partition of India and the limits of Genocide Studies

Please join us for this Criminology and Sociology research seminar - all are welcome.

Gavin Rand is principal lecturer in history at the University of Greenwich. Gavin joined Greenwich in 2005, having completed a PhD at Manchester, under Patrick Joyce and Anindita Ghosh, in 2004. Most of Gavin's work explores the history of colonial violence in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He has written on the recruiting and administration of the imperial military as well as on the role of violence in colonial governance, and has co-edited two collections on conflict in colonial South Asia. Gavin is currently writing a cultural history of the Indian Army after 1857 and has begun work on a new project exploring the army's role during the partition of 1947.
