Beyond famines: Wartime state, society and the polticization of food in Colonial India, 1939-45

The generous funding from the Economic History Society enabled me to write up my chapters while living in Oxford. It also allowed me to conduct supplementary research at the Nuffield College Library in Oxford, and at the British Library in London, which broadened the source base of my research and led to a refinement of my arguments. During this past year, I presented my research findings at two conferences respectively at the Columbia University in New York, and at the University of Chicago in Chicago. I express my deep gratitude to the Economic History Society for its generous support.
