Madihah Akhter


Madihah is currently holding the H&S Dean’s Postdocotral Fellowship. Her research and teaching examine gender and sovereignty in historical perspective, with regional expertise in modern South Asia, the British empire, and the Muslim world. As an postdoctoral fellow, Madihah plans to work on her manuscript-in-progress, titled "In Her Own Right: Sovereignty and Gender in Princely India,” and will also teach two classes in the history and feminist, gender, and sexuality studies departments and help launch a new, first-year course on citizenship.
