Laurence GAUTIER


Laurence Gautier holds a PhD in History from the University of Cambridge.  She is Assistant Professor at the Jindal School of Liberal Arts and Humanities (O.P. Jindal Global University), as well as an Associate Researcher of the CSH. Her doctoral research examined the role of Muslim universities in the redefinition of Indian Muslim identities after partition (1947-1990s). Building on her thesis, Laurence Gautier is now expanding her research work on issues of national integration, secularism, multiculturalism and minority rights, particularly among Indian Muslims, as well as on student politics. As an Associate Researcher at the CSH, she co-edited a special issue on ‘Historicizing Sayyid-ness: Social Status and Muslim Identity in South Asia’, to be published in the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society, along with Julien Levesque, Head Researcher at the Centre.

She is currently working on her monograph, Between Nation and Community. Muslim universities and Indian politics after Partition, to be published by Cambridge University Press.
