Anne Hardgrove, Associate Professor of History, received a B.A. from Carleton College and Ph.D. in Anthropology and History from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Dr. Hardgrove's focus is interdisciplinary, with a geographical concentration on South Asia, in particular India. Her research sought to address the question of how people begin to think of themselves as larger regional and pan-regional communities. This project was awarded the American Historical Association Gutenberg-e Prize for Outstanding Dissertation in History. The title of her book is: Community and Public Culture: The Marwaris in Calcutta c. 1897 - 1997. Her current research charts the global construction of sexuality, in light of the transnational circulation of culture.
