Past & Present Fellow: Race, Ethnicity & Equality in History
Diya is Past & Present Fellow: Race, Ethnicity & Equality in History at the Royal Historical Society and Institute for Historical Research where she develops and moves forward the work of the RHS Race, Ethnicity & Equality Working Group (REEWG). This includes the 2021 series ‘Writing Race’ for the RHS blog, Historical Transactions.
Diya is writing her first book, based on her doctoral research (2015–2019) completed at the Department of English, King’s College London, where she studied Indian experiences and literature of the Second World War. In her book, alongside colonial photographs, she analyses letters, memoirs, political philosophy and literary texts in English and Indian languages to reveal the intensity and influence of Indian war emotions.
