Hope. Horror and Humanitarianism in the Congo Basin, 1860-1920
I am a DPhil candidate in Global and Imperial History. My doctoral research excavates the intellectual and activist networks of Black women, including emancipated African-American, Afro-British, Caribbean, and Congolese women. Through this, I connect Black women's networks in the Atlantic World to early Black internationalism.
My research at Oxford is supported by the Oxford Research in the Scholarship and Humanities of Africa (ORISHA) scholarship from 2021-2024. In June 2022, I was awarded the Beit Travel Grant to conduct archival work in the United States of America. I hold a Bachelor of Arts (hons) degree in History from Miranda House, University of Delhi and a Masters in International History from the Geneva Graduate Institute, which was supported by the Graduate Institute Scholarship, 2018-2020.
