Life After Ertegun House

After leaving the Ertegun house, I worked as a junior lecturer in history at the department of English and Humanities at BRAC University in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I am currently a PhD student in the department of South Asian Languages and Civilizations (SALC) of the University of Chicago. My research focuses on the intellectual history of nineteenth century Bengal, in particular on the ways in which the past was recounted in the East Bengali town of Chittagong.
