Other Information: In his final year of a Master’s in Sociology, Sujit regards himself as first and foremost a historian whose interest lies in understanding the long term processes of historical change within societies. Aside from his academic studies, he chose to focus on history in his extra-curricular activities, serving as President of the History Society at St Stephen’s College (2009-2010) and devouring historical fiction. Thanks to a grant awarded to him by the European Studies Programme of the University of Delhi, Sujit undertook independent fieldwork in Paris earlier this summer, studying the traveller community in Paris in affiliation with L’École des Haut Études en Sciences Sociales. In Oxford he hopes to focus on modern British and European history. His long term ambition is to mentor, research and develop the facilities and resources necessary for students to study European history in India.
