Research supervision

I am open to discussing research proposals on any subject relevant to my research expertise. I would be especially happy to consider working with candidates who have interests in early modern literature and cultural history, Eurasian/Anglo-Indian cultural exchanges, the global Renaissance, literature and science, literature and ecology, manuscript culture and book history. Projects taking interdisciplinary approaches to literature within and/or beyond the established literary canon would be very welcome.
