BA in History (Hons.), Lady Shri Ram College for Women, Delhi University, 2018
My area of interest is ancient history, primarily social histories re-created from historiography, literary and archeological sources, with a keen focus on gender in ancient Greece. I wish to explore the interconnections between the sexuality of women and the economic structures of Classical Athens, both being transactional in nature.
During my Honors in History at Lady Shri Ram College for Women, Delhi University my interest and research in ancient Indian history drew me towards comparisons between the two ancient societies, such as, the social contexts of the emergence of the characters of Electra and Shakuntala in the Classical Age of India and that of Athens, paving the way to study Classics at Harvard. This opportunity is a stepping stone towards my doctoral work.
