Dr Sarah Hodges

Sarah Hodges is Lecturer in the Department of History at the University of Warwick.

She works on the social and cultural history of modern South Asia. Her interests lie at the intersection of a number of fields: modern South Asian history (particularly of the Tamil south), development, anthropology, and the history of science, technology and medicine. Her current work is on the global circulation of medical garbage and its transformation from risk to resource over the course of the past century. Her recent work addresses the politics of reproduction and sexuality in colonial and postcolonial India, particularly in relation to questions of how and why the relationship between India and the West was mediated by a scientific modernity during the first half of the twentieth century.
