Joseph McQuade is the Richard Charles Lee Postdoctoral Fellow in the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy and a former SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for South Asian Studies. He is also Editor-in-Chief at the NATO Association of Canada. Dr. McQuade is affiliated with the Queen’s University Global History Initiative and with the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society, and is a Managing Editor of the Journal of Indian Ocean World Studies.
Dr. McQuade completed his Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge as a Gates Scholar, with a dissertation that examined the origins of terrorism in colonial India from an international perspective. This research forms the basis of his first book, A Genealogy of Terrorism: Colonial Law and the Origins of an Idea, will be published by Cambridge University Press in November 2020. His postdoctoral research at the University of Toronto examines how digital platforms have been used to mobilize vigilante violence in India and Myanmar from the 1990s to the present. His broader research and teaching interests include critical genealogies of terrorism, international relations in Asia, and the global history of political violence.
This event is an Asian Legal History Seminar organised by the Faculty of Law and the Department of History.
