Doctoral Candidate in History & Law
1029 Tisch Hall, Ann Arbor MI, 48109-1003
"I am currently a candidate for a dual-degree in History and Law at the University of Michigan. Broadly, my research focuses on the history of early 20th century international law in its relationship with imperial forms of power. In particular, I am interested in tracking the development of anti-colonial and anti-racist legal subjectivities between 1920 and 1955, as colonized peoples used international forums -- in particular the League of Nations' Permanent Mandates Commission and the UN's Trusteeship Council -- to frame a rights-based critique of colonial rule. My dissertation will trace the creation of transnational networks of solidarity, in which anti-colonial and anti-racist activists articulated new forms of international protest that challenged both colonial rule and the primacy of the nation-state in international engagement."
