Rosalind Rothwell

I am a Ph.D. student in History at Duke. My research interests include early modern colonialism, visual and material culture, trade, and the digital humanities. In particular, my work focuses on South Asian textiles; the circulation of such goods in South Asia and the Americas; and how colonial consumers of different diverse backgrounds found cultural and political meaning in textiles and dress. 

I hold an M.A. in Global, International & Comparative History from Georgetown University, where I completed an M.A. thesis titled "From 'English Modes' to Yankee Fashion: East India Calico in the Eighteenth-Century Chesapeake." I hold a B.A. in History with Honor and minor in Art from Skidmore College. Prior to my studies at Duke, I worked in public history and in higher education.
