2018_HLS_Yang_210x232Anand Yang began his career specializing in South Asian History, specifically relating to colonial India. In recent years, his interests have become more comparative and global, involving India, China and other regions of Asia as well as the rest of the world. He teaches South Asian and world history classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels at the Department of History, as well as policy-related classes in the Jackson School — most recently a Task Force class on global poverty and another on food politics. His next project concerns the North Indian labor diaspora to countries in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, the Caribbean and Southeast Asia.
