Dr. Diamond is a South Asia historian, particularly India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. He also specializes in the Islamic World, the British Empire, the Middle East, and Gender. In addition, he delves into Early Modern and Modern World History and African history.
I gained an appreciation of history as a teenager living in a town with historical ties (including buildings and monuments) to the American Revolutionary War. As an undergraduate at Penn, I became interested in South Asia and Islam by taking new courses that broadened my worldview, meeting people from around the world, and through student activities. Prior to coming to CSB/SJU, I held a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship at Cornell University and taught South Asian history at the College of Charleston.
