Dr Santanu Das, Reader in the Department of English, King’s College London


India joined WW1 as part of the British empire, contributing nearly one and half million men, including 900,000 combatants and 600,000 non-combatants, who served in places as far-flung as France, Gallipoli, Mesopotamia, East Africa, Egypt and the Far East.

Drawing from archives in Europe and India – letters, diaries, original sound-recordings from German POW camps, photographs, paintings, and literary representations by both British and Indian writers – this lecture will investigate the Indian war experience in Europe.

Dr Sanatu Das’ current monograph India, Empire and the First World War: Words, Objects and Images will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2016.
