Onni Gust

Onni is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Nottingham. Their research examines the history of identity formation and belonging in the British Empire during the ‘long’ eighteenth century, with a focus on India.

Onni explores how what it meant to feel ‘at home’ in the eighteenth-century British Empire was configured through the exclusion of certain bodies in space.  Drawing on post-colonial studies, queer and feminist theory, they are interested in how ideas of belonging circulated across the British Empire and have shaped our understanding of what it means to be human today.  Since 2010, Onni has worked with school teachers, young people in schools and youth clubs, and artists to think through the legacies of the British Empire for society today.  They are currently working with Leverhulme Artist in Residence, Dr Michael McMillan, on an interdisciplinary project on trauma and the legacies of empire.
