Dr Maria Misra shares her experiences as both a student and academic at Oxford University, as well as her love of South Asia, in a 15-minute interview.
In the audio recording, Dr Misra, an Associate Professor of Modern History and a Fellow of Keble College, contextualises contemporary Indian politics and India's role in the world by mentioning India's diversity, Hindu nationalism, changing global power dynamics, and the importance of China. The author of Vishnu’s Crowded Temple: India Since the Great Rebellion also refers to current links and the relationship between India and the United Kingdom.
Dr Misra also explains how her intellectual interests have evolved from studying English and PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) at Christ Church to specialising in research and teaching the history of 20th century India and the British Empire in her role at Keble.
In addition, the podcast focuses on Spectacular Ceylon - a visit for alumni to Sri Lanka in June 2016. Dr Misra will lead the tour and she describes its highlights, including:
UNESCO's World Heritage Site at Anuradhapura
