Dr. Chandrika Kaul, a lecturer in modern history from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, will be the keynote speaker during The 2012 College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Colloquium at Texas A&M University-Kingsville at 3 p.m. Thursday, April 5 in the Blue Room of Fore Hall.

This free event is open to the public.

Kaul’s lecture, “Media, the British Raj and the American Connection,” will focus on the nearly 90-years of British rule on the Indian subcontinent.

Kaul holds a master’s degree and doctorate degree from Oxford University. She is co-editor of the book series Palgrave Studies in the History of the Media and sits on the editorial board of the international journal, Media History. Kaul also serves as the vice president of the South Asian Student Association USA and is the co-chair of the History Section of the International Association of Media and Communication Research.

“We are very fortunate to have Dr. Kaul as this year’s speaker,” said Dr. Nirmal Goswami, professor of political science and member of the Colloquium Committee. “She has an impressive record of scholarship.

“Dr. Kaul’s presentation will provide a unique opportunity to the A&M-Kingsville community to learn about how British colonial-era media covered major events. A particularly interesting aspect of her presentation will include highlighting a relatively unknown American connection.”
