Kyle Jackson completed a Ph.D. (Warwick, 2017) on the environmental and religious history of Northeast India under the supervision of Professor Emeritus David Hardiman, a founding member of the Subaltern Studies Collective. Jackson’s thesis was a finalist for the Royal Asiatic Society’s inaugural Sir Christopher Bayly Prize, and was awarded the International Convention of Asia Scholars’ “Ground-breaking Subject Matter Accolade.” Assisted by a recent postdoctoral research fellowship at the International Institute for Asian Studies (Leiden), he is currently revising the dissertation into a book entitled The Mizo Discovery of the British Raj.

Jackson’s articles on Northeast India, historical methodology, and pedagogy appear in Modern Asian Studies, History Compass, and Studies in History. At KPU, he teaches and researches histories of colonialism, Indigenous peoples, religion, and animals in transnational and global contexts.
