Research

Prof. Campion’s research interests focus primarily on the British Empire in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries—particularly in North India, Ireland, and the Mediterranean. He has studied the influence of Irish revolutionaries in the development of Indian nationalism and is currently working on a book about the Indian Police during British colonial rule. His scholarly interests tend to focus on the effects of cross-cultural contact, particularly in a colonial setting.  Prof. Campion’s research and teaching have been supported by the William J. Fulbright Foundation, the American Council of Learned Societies, the Andrew J. Mellon Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Institute of Indian Studies, and the Rotary International Foundation.
