Rosalind Rothwell

I am a PhD student in History. Broadly, I am interested in visual and material culture, colonialism, gender, race, and trade in the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, c. 1600-1800. My research concerns South Indian material culture, colonialism, and the 18th C. Indo-Atlantic world.

I hold an M.A. in Global, International & Comparative History from Georgetown University, where I wrote my thesis on South Asian cottons in the eighteenth-century Chesapeake. I hold a B.A. in History and minor in Art (design) from Skidmore College. Prior to my studies at Duke, I worked in public history and in higher education.

Languages: Italian (fluent); Portuguese, French (read); Tamil (read-intermediate)
