Diya Gupta

Writer. Researcher.

Welcome to my website.

I am a PhD researcher at King's College London, working on Indian soldiers' experiences in the Second World War from a literary and cultural perspective. Watch a short film on my research here. Click here for my detailed academic CV.

My teaching experience includes working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) on the 2015/16 and 2017/18  'First World War Literature' module for second-year undergraduates in the English Department at King's, convened by Santanu Das. In 2017/18, I  also worked as a GTA on a second-year undergraduate module in Comparative Literature at King's, 'Ideas of Nation', convened by Javed Majeed and Justine McConnell.

In addition, I offer freelance writing services to universities, charities and newspapers.

As an experienced freelance journalist, I have been published in leading Indian and UK newspapers, magazines and websites, including the Guardian, the award-winning CAM magazine, Scroll.in and The Telegraph (India)

As a proposals writer for major donors at the universities of Cambridge, Sheffield and King's College London, I have significant experience in presenting academic projects to the non-specialist.

If you wish to share your friend or family member's experience of the Second World War and be part of my research project, please get in touch. Alternatively, if you would like to commission a writing project from me, drop me a line. I would be delighted to hear from you.
