About the author:

Dr Laurence Gautier is a researcher in “Documenting Democracy: History, Politics, and Citizenship” at Centre de Sciences Humaines (CSH). Her research focuses on Indian Muslims’ position after partition, both as citizens and as a minority group. Her debut monograph, Between Nation and Community: Muslim Universities and Indian Politics after Partition (Cambridge University Press, 2024), explores the role of Muslim universities as intermediaries between state authorities and the community. Laurence also engages in research on Muslim leadership and representation in various contexts, including a prosopographical study of Muslim leaders post-independence. Additionally, she investigates intermediaries between state actors and religious minorities in India’s secular regime.
