As a cultural and historical geographer, Dr Krishnan is interested in gender, childhood and the intersections of bio- and geopolitics in postcolonial contexts.
Sneha is working on the Unstable Archives project, which is funded by an award from the John Fell Fund, in collaboration with Megan Robb (University of Pennsylvania). How is ‘gender’ constituted in the archive? What relation does ‘gender’ bear to Empire and to cultures of travel and mobility, as well as to projects of education, literacy and self-making? This collaboration represents an effort to engage these questions while asking how digitization shapes contemporary engagements with ‘gender’ in colonial contexts, particularly that of South Asia
