“The Hungry Harvest: Food Security in the Era of South Asian Decolonization, 1935-1966”
Loveridge works at the intersection of development studies and history. A Stanford BA in History and an Oxford MPhil in International Development, Loveridge is now writing his University of Texas at Austin history dissertation on how decolonization challenged India and Pakistan to secure natural resources, define their borders, and stabilize their food economies. Loveridge’s main focuses are agricultural science and struggles over U.S. interventions in South Asian food economies, seeking the origins of the Green Revolution.
