Pragya Dhital completed a PhD in the department of Religions and Philosophies at SOAS in 2016: “Paper chains: the techno-politics of communication in modern India”.

Research

She is currently researching a collection of publications proscribed in colonial India, held jointly by the British Library and National Archives of India.  Through a transnational and multilingual approach to studying this material, she aims to go beyond centre-periphery models of the diffusion of cultural and political forms, be it the nation or the novel, using methodologies rived from literary studies and book history.
