A former student of the École Normale Supérieure, Anne-Julie Etter is completing a PhD in history at the University Paris Diderot – Paris 7, where she currently teaches South Asian history to undergraduate students (2011 2012). Her research deals with antiquarianism in early colonial India (1750 1830), through an analysis of the study and preservation of monuments and the constitution of collections.
Her publications include “Antiquarian Knowledge and Preservation of Indian Monuments at the Beginning of the Nineteenth Century”, in Daud Ali and Indra Sengupta (eds.), Knowledge Production, Pedagogy, and Institutions in Colonial India, New York, Palgrave Macmillan, 2011, p. 75 95 and “Archéologie”, in Catherine Clémentin-Ojha, Christophe Jaffrelot, Denis Matringe and Jacques Pouchepadass (eds.), Dictionnaire de l’Inde, Paris, Larousse, 2009, p. 98 103.
