Mou Banerjee, Graduate Student Associate, SAI; History PhD, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences
Chair: Sugata Bose, Gardiner Professor of Oceanic History and Affairs
Mou’s research explores the dialogues and debates of Indian intellectuals with evangelical Protestant Christianity and missionaries in the nineteenth century, especially in the Bengal Presidency in India. In her analysis of these debates, Banerjee charts the development of a complex relationship of overt repudiation and covert fascination, where Christianity was perceived as a religion and a philosophy, a discursive and dialectical category, a denominator of racial and social difference, and as a repository of Enlightenment ethos and modernity.
