Her book The Rani of Jhansi: Gender, History, and Fable in India (Cambridge University Press, 2014) interprets the conflicting, mutable images of an historical icon as they change over time in literature, film, history, and popular culture. She has published articles on novels from India and Pakistan, on Indian film, and reviewed books on Hip-Hop music, sexuality, and feminism. Her work includes texts in English, Hindi, Urdu, and Punjabi and her current book projects include a critical translation of Amrita Pritam’s partition novel Pinjar and a monograph titled Half an Independence: Women, Violence, and Modern Lives in India.
