I am an Assistant Professor at Vidyasagar University in West Bengal, India, specializing in the colonial era. My research explores the history of madness within the asylums of the Bengal Presidency. My current research focuses on unmādas’ [madness as termed in Sanskrit] relation with āyurveda in India during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
