Joseph McQuade is a Gates Scholar at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, whose doctoral research examines the global scope of imperial
networks of surveillance and Indian radical politics during the first half of
the twentieth century. Research follows the transformation of laws of sedition
into laws of 'terror' in both international and British imperial law from the
beginning of the First World War until the end of the 1930s, with the intention
of exploring the origins of terrorism as a legal category and global idea.
