Professor Dharwadker wins NEH fellowship

Professor Dharwadker, a professor of English and interdisciplinary theatre studies, has won a National Endowment Fellowship to support her latest book project, “Contested Modernities and the Modernization of Urban Theatre in India.” The book traces the processes of modernization that began under Anglo-European influences in the mid-19th century, when Victorian-style theaters were first constructed in colonial cities like Calcutta (now Kolkata) and Bombay (now Mumbai).

Congratulations to Professor Dharwadker for winning this prestigious fellowship!
