Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a PhD student in Global Affairs, and my area of primary research concerns colonial genocides in Indigenous North America. I also have a secondary research interest in global environmental problems. Generally speaking, I am very concerned about the fate of planetary life in the 21st century, and I am convinced that we all need to raise awareness of global values and norms, while also remaining sensitive to local interests, needs, and particularities. In order to promote ethical actions in the communities to which I belong, it is important for me foster dialogue with like-minded colleagues from around the world.

Princeton's Gyan Prakash tells the tragic story of the Amritsar Massacre in 1919, in which a British general ordered his soldiers to shoot at thousands of unarmed civilians, and its galvanizing effect on the Indian independence movement. Was this violence an "exceptional" moment in Britain's colonial history? And how did it change Gandhi's thinking in relation to his strategies to resist colonialism?
