Swapna M. Banerjee has been named the Endowed Chair in Women's and Gender Studies for 2016-18.

She is completing a manuscript on fathers and children in colonial India, under contract with Oxford University Press. Her book, Men, Women, and Domestics: Articulating Middle-Class Identity in Colonial Bengal (Oxford, 2004) employs the lens of employer-servant relationships to understand the construction of national identity in colonial Bengal.
