South Asia Seminar

Tim Harper's research interests centre on the history of modern Southeast Asia and the region's global connections. His first book, The End of Empire and the Making of Malaya (1999), was a study of war, communist insurgency and the achievement of independence in Malaya and Singapore. Since then, he has published, with Christopher Bayly, a two-volume account of the Second World War and its aftermath in South and Southeast Asia. His recent work has focussed on mobility and interactions across Asia, and the sites, networks and ideas that emerged from this.

This seminar series is organised with the support of the History Faculty.
