Hannah Archambault was born and raised in Oregon and spent some of her formative years raising sheep with her family in the Rogue Valley. She is a historian of early modern South Asia and of the Indian Ocean world, and is presently working on a book manuscript tracing the histories of two Afghan noble households in 17th- and 18th-century South India. She uses their stories to explore economic and social ties that structured and at times transcended formal systems of government. Hannah is interested in frontiers and borderlands, ethnogenesis, Afghan history, Indo-Islamic systems of governance, legal regimes and their transformations under colonial rule, and questions of gender and power.
