About Samee Siddiqui

I am a PhD Candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill studying Asian History, focusing on Japanese-South Asian intellectual exchanges between 1905 and the Second World War. In particular, I explore South Asian anticolonial figures engaged in discussions surrounding religion, race, and empire. I have been an avid listener of the New Books Network for at least five years now and would love to contribute to a variety of channels (if possible): South Asian Studies, Japanese Studies, Religion, Islamic Studies, and Buddhist Studies.
