Prof. Haimanti Roy specializes in the political and social history of colonial India and modern South Asia. Her first book, Partitioned Lives: Refugees, Migrants, Citizens in India and Pakistan, 1947-65 (Delhi: Oxford University Press, 2012) examines issues of territoriality, identity, migration and citizenship, and the subsequent re-ordering of national identities of ordinary men and women in post-Partition India and East Pakistan (present day Bangladesh). Her second book, published in 2018, is a short introduction to the Partition of India which is part of the Oxford India Short Introductions series. She is currently working on a social history of travel certificates and identification documents and their implications for framing citizenship in twentieth century India.
