Ayesha Ramachandran

Comparative Literature

Ayesha Ramachandran is Associate Professor of Comparative Literature and an affiliate of the Programs in Renaissance Studies and the History of Science and Medicine. She received her BA from Smith College and her PhD from Yale in Renaissance Studies, and is a former Junior Fellow of the Harvard Society of Fellows. A literary and cultural historian of early modern Europe, she pursues interdisciplinary research on literature, philosophy, cartography, visual culture and the history of science, focusing on the long histories of globalization and modernity. Her first prizewinning book, The Worldmakers (University of Chicago Press, 2015) provides a cultural and intellectual history of “the world,” showing how it emerged as a cultural keyword in early modernity. She has written on major authors of the European Renaissance (Petrarch, Montaigne, Tasso, Spenser, Milton), on postcolonial drama, and on the histories of religious fundamentalism and cosmopolitanism. She is a co-editor of Spenser Studies and has co-edited several special issues of scholarly journals on topics ranging from humanism and posthumanism, macrocosmic Shakespeare, Renaissance aesthetics and history, and imagining global early modernity. Her current projects range from new research on early modern South Asia to comparative philology, cartography and lyric studies. She is currently working on two very different book projects – one on lyric poetry, tentatively entitled, Lyric Thinking: Towards a Global Poetics, and a hybrid memoir-cum-cultural history of officers and their families in the Indian Army, tentatively entitled, My Grandfather’s Army: Narratives of Nation-Building in Modern India.
