  • Approaches Tod's writings from an angle of cultural contact and exchanges between Tod and the Rajputs
  • Situates Tod's texts in their political, scientific, and cultural context
  • Takes into account Tod's intertextual use of various sources from European historiography and literature in order to understand their role in his writings
  • Attempts to go beyond the binary oppositions established by Edward Said's Orientalism, in order to better understand the multidirectional influences and interactions at play between colonisers and colonised
