Gavin is an AHRC-funded PhD student examining board gaming in metropole Britain as a cultural phenomenon producing, disseminating, and construing imperial relations through play. His research focusses on British imperialism in India, considering how the participative interfaces unique to board games variously promoted, complicated, and contested the practices of imperial domination, exploitation and violence.
