Sanjay Seth

Professor Sanjay Seth, Director

Professor Sanjay Seth has published in the fields of modern Indian history, political and social theory, postcolonial theory and international relations. He is particularly interested in how modern European ideologies, and modern Western knowledge more generally, ‘travelled’ to the non-Western world- and what effects this had both on the non-Western world, and on modern, Western knowledge.

Dr David L Martin

Dr David L Martin, Co-Director

Dr David Martin is a committed interdisciplinary scholar with expertise in the fields of politics, art history, postcolonial theory, cultural geography, medical humanities and the history of religion. Far from distracted wanderings, these interdisciplinary concerns coalesce sharply around questions of politics and vision. In particular, he is concerned with the embodied nature of vision.
