Sarah Ansari is Professor of History at Royal Holloway, University of London. Her research focuses on 19th and 20th-century South Asia with an emphasis on places that are today in Pakistan, in particular the province of Sindh and its mega-city Karachi. Her publications have explored the role of local religious elites, the impact of migration, women’s lives, so-called ‘ethnic’ identities, and interactions between ordinary citizens and the everyday state. Her most recent book (co-written with William Gould) is Boundaries of Belonging: localities, citizenship and rights in India and Pakistan (CUP, 2019).

 

The lecture is organized by PD Dr. Andrea Fleschenberg and Dr. Sadia Bajwa as part of the MA course "Negotiating 'Minorities' in South and Southeast Asia in Transregional Perspective" 
It is hosted by the departments of Transregional Southeast Asian Studies and South Asian Studies, Institute for Asian and African Studies, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
