About the Author
I am an historian of culture and the sacred, especially interested in ethical questions. I am currently a PhD student in History at the University of Notre Dame, having recently completed a Fulbright Study/Research grant (2021-22) in Spain, where I explored political contexts of the Mallorcan philosopher Ramon Llull. I am also a Visiting Lecturer (2023) at the University of Florida, Gainesville, where I live with my wife and daughter. We enjoy hiking, car museums, and good coffee shops.
In this article, I provide a new interpretation on the abolition of widow-burning in British India, focusing on the interplay between local opinion, administrative priorities, and British officials' cultural and religious views.
