Anushay Malik is primarily a labour historian with a geographical focus on South Asia. Her teaching and research interests focus on labour movements with particular attention to the space of the city and the way in which it affects worker organization and possibilities. This idea, of possibilities, underlies most of her work and was the main focus of her PhD dissertation that explored how expansive political imaginations, made possible by the end of the Second World War and decolonization, made workers in Pakistan think that a revolution was possible. She spent some time as a research fellow at the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam working on a comparative project exploring how Partition in 1947 impacted the labour networks of Bangladeshi, Pakistani, and Indian sea faring workers. Anushay moved back to Pakistan in 2014 and joined LUMS (Lahore University of Management Services) as an Assistant Professor where she has been teaching courses on global histories of migration, nationalism in South Asia, labour and urban history, and Pakistani history. She is currently working on an AHRC, UK funded project with Dr Humera Iqbal (UCL) on ‘Partition of Identity: An exploration of Belonging in Bengalis in Pakistan, 1971- 2021’. The project will run from 2020 to 2022 and focuses on the community of Bengali ‘migrants’ in Karachi, Pakistan.
