SASNET welcomes Ted Svensson

Profile picture of Ted Svensson

Ted Svensson is Associate Professor at the Department of Political Science, Lund University. He has worked at Lund University since 2009 and he obtained his PhD at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom. His research has consistently revolved around issues pertaining to South Asia, often with a focus on imperialism, state formation and nationalism.

At the moment, he is finalising a monograph on British indirect rule in nineteenth century South Asia and he is also involved in a project titled 'Divine Ganges, Profane Development: Sacred Geographies and the Governing of Pollution', which explores the tension between notions of the river that stem from religious and secular conceptions of it.
