Research Topic: Imperial Retribution: The hunt for Nana Sahib and rebel leaders in the aftermath of the Indian “Mutiny” of 1857


Supervisor: Professor Kim A. Wagner

I am currently researching the British pursuit of retribution in the aftermath of the Indian Mutiny of 1857, and the importance of revenge as a driving force within the British empire. My research investigates British responses to anti-colonial resistance and "outrages" primarily through various incarnations of violence, the actions of colonial officials and popular culture within the empire.
