Dr. Diva Gujral is an LSE Fellow in Twentieth-century Indian and Global Imperial History. She completed her doctoral thesis, entitled ‘Picturing Non-Alignment: Photography, nation-building and identity in India, c. 1950-1975,’ at the Department of History of Art, UCL, in 2021. Her thesis traced the development of modernist photography in early postcolonial India in the context of the state’s political (and cultural) enactments of anti-colonialism. Prior to joining the LSE she held teaching positions at UCL and the Open University. Her research interests include global art histories; photographic modernism; anticolonial solidarity networks; and themes of postcolonial utopias, nostalgia, and colonial legacies in South Asian visual culture.
