Disambiguation notice
The Deborah Swallow author entry needs to be split with the co-author of "Arts of India: 1550-1900" of the same name. Investigating the latter on the internet, it can be established that she is "Deborah Swallow, Märit Rausing Director at the Courtauld Institute of Art since 2004, gathered her museum experience first at the Cambridge University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and then at the Victoria and Albert Museum where she was the Keeper of the Asian Department and Director of Collections. Her first degree was in English literature which she read at New Hall, University of Cambridge, but her PhD was in Social Anthropology at Darwin College, Cambridge.

It was when she taught for a year in India that she developed a deep interest in the arts, culture and religions of the subcontinent, initially explored through the discipline of social anthropology and, subsequently, as a curator. As head of the then Indian Department at the V&A, Swallow oversaw the creation of the Nehru Gallery of Art and a series of major exhibitions on the arts of different regions and communities in the subcontinent, and established close relationships both with the South Asian communities in the UK and colleagues and institutions in the subcontinent. She continues to work on issues relating to the arts and cultural heritage in contemporary India."


Given the subject of this book, it is highly unlikely that the author Deborah Swallow mentioned on this page, being an expert in public speaking, is the co-author of this book.
