My name is Priyam Goswami Choudhury. I am based in Berlin where I am an academic researcher working in the Institute of English and American Studies at Universität Potsdam. archivbox started out as a semi-strange project of mine but has become a part of my work-life balance scheme, whatever that means in an academic setting. These days, I use this site to have a space to collect my writing (academic and otherwise), conference presentations, and teaching.

My doctoral research involved trying to understand the publishing histories of Indian English poetry after 1947. I submitted my dissertation (yay?) in September of 2023. Right now, I am reading up about the history of Assam tea and thinking about the ways in which the archives of tea are linked to imperial ideas of the environment, land rights, (agricultural) monoculture, and indigeneity. My research interests broadly include imperial ecologies, postcolonial literature, literary theory, and pop-culture. You can find my Academia profile here for some (rather old) papers on Shakespeare, presentation drafts, and more info on my academic work. You can reach me at goswamichoudhury(at)uni(hyphen)potsdam(dot)de.

My current tab will tell you what I am up to in life, generally.
