Description

Lecturer in modern cultural and social histories of race, science and empire Sadiah's research focuses on how the histories of race, science and empire are relevant to the contemporary world. This includes debates about the dispossession and future of endangered races and the restitution of land rights to formerly colonised peoples. Sadiah's first book looked at the commercial exhibition of foreign peoples in the nineteenth century and she is currently working on notions of human extinction and interethnic conflict in settler colonies.
