Professor Ian Copland
Professor Ian F. Copland was raised in Perth and educated at the University of Western Australia and Balliol College Oxford. He joined Monash University in 1970 and taught here for nearly forty years, before retiring in 2009. He researches on modern India and Pakistan, Indian religious history and comparative colonialism. His earlier publications, which followed on from his doctoral work, looked at the relations of the Indian princely states with the British Raj during the high, and late, colonial periods; they included The British Raj and the Indian Princes: Paramountcy in Western India, 1857-1930 (Bombay: Orient Longman, 1982) and The Princes of India in the Endgame of Empire, 1917-1947 (Cambridge/New York: Cambridge University Press, 1997). Subsequently Ian turned to investigating Hindu-Muslim communal relations in the colonial context, and the role of religion in facilitating and complicating the business of governance. The results of these inquiries are reported in: State, Community and Neighbourhood in Princely North India, c. 1900-1950 (Basingstoke/New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2005) and A History of State and Religion in India (Abingdon/New York: Routledge, 2012), jointly written with four colleagues. Ian is currently researching the leadership of India’s Congress Party over the first three decades of Independence. From 2001 to 2010 he edited the journal South Asia. He is a foundation member of the South Asian Studies Association, and a fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities.
