I currently supervise the following D.Phil. students:
Mohammed Nadeem Noor: (entered 2001; funded by the Overseas Research Scholarship, writing on the role of eunuchs in Mughal South Asia, ca. 1500-1800.
Laura Sandy: (entered 2002; funded by the Economic and Social Research Council), writing on the social and economic functions of overseers on antebellum Southern plantations.
I welcome inquiries from potential research students for the M.A. and D.Phil. degrees, particularly in the areas of colonial British American and Atlantic history, slavery and race, gender (particularly masculinity), and material culture.
