Her first book, Comrades against Imperialism: Nehru, India and Interwar Internationalism (Cambridge University Press, 2018), is set between the world wars and recovers the debates, introduces the personalities, and reveals the ideas that seeded Jawaharlal Nehru’s political vision for India and the wider world.

Journalism Under the Taliban: Understanding the Lived Experience of Journalists in Afghanistan 2:00pm
Thursday, October 5th, 2023
02:00 PM - 03:15 PM
The Dodd Center for Human Rights
Media is under heavy censorship under the Taliban in Afghanistan. Many Afghan journalists have been forced to flee the country. Those remaining face the Taliban’s oppressive restrictions on free expression, including widespread political imprisonment and targeted violence. Based on extensive fieldwork and data collection in Afghanistan, we will examine how journalists navigate these risks and challenges under the Taliban regime.
This event is a collaboration between the Human Rights Research & Data Hub and the Graduate Research Forum at the Gladstein Family Human Rights Institute.
