Congratulations to Dr Daniel J. R. Grey, who has been awarded a British Academy grant to conduct research for his forthcoming book, 'Codes of Conduct: Gender, Religion and Homicide in British India 1793-1914'. 

The grant will enable Dr Grey to conduct research trips to consult archives in Chennai, Mumbai, and Aberystwyth.

His research explores British ideas and practices regarding homicide, which, he argues, had a profound influence on legal attitudes and outcomes in India during the long nineteenth century.

Dr Grey is a junior research fellow in World History at Wolfson College.
