Jagjeet Lally is a Lecturer in the History of Early Modern and Modern India. He joined UCL in 2013 as a historian of South Asia, with wider interests in western Asia and the Middle East, and across the histories of the environment, economy, society, science, and culture. He is currently completing his first project on India's cultural and commercial connections with central Eurasia in the period before c. 1914. This project also diverged into smaller inquires into Indo-Islamicate equestrian visual culture, the history of experiments and economic change in early colonial Punjab, the Salvation Army's work with revivifying sericulture in early-twentieth-century India, the moral economy of colour in pre-colonial north India, and the later eighteenth-century Afghan economy. His next project will focus on the Himalayas.
