History Major
City College Fellow

Samina Sirajuddowla is pursing her BA/MA in History with a concentration in South Asia.  She aspires to produce and publish new knowledge about the history of the Indian subcontinent while engaging in discussions of larger contemporary moral, political, and cultural issues. She is the recipient of the Charles T. Cromwell Award in History and recently completed a research fellowship at Stanford University. Samina is currently examining the polemical  literary works of an important yet understudied anti-colonial intellectual, Kazi Nazrul Islam, in order to better understand the rise of nationalism and anti-colonial resistance movements in late colonial Bengal. Her interests include decolonization, nationalism, anti-colonialism, literary histories and subaltern studies.
