My current research is, broadly, in three areas: Non-Western International Relations, IR’s disciplinary history and diplomatic histories of India and South Africa. More generally, I am interested in the politics of knowledge from the perspectives of the Global South. I am currently finishing a co-authored book (with Peter Vale) on an alternative disciplinary history of IR.
