Assistant Professor of South Asian Religions


Professor Robb is currently interested in the link between print publics and group identity formation, particularly in the first half of the twentieth century in South Asia. Her monograph in progress focuses on the links between Urdu newspapers and the development of a common vocabulary of social and political Islam in North India between 1900 and 1950. Her recent article in Modern Asian Studies focuses on the trend toward men writing in women’s voices in mainstream and reformist Urdu newspapers, and the insights those practices lend to performances of masculinity in early twentieth century South Asia.
