Research interests

My doctoral research is focussed on investigating the epistemic aspects of resistance movements in contemporary India, with a focus on Shaheen Bagh. In particular, I investigate the ways these movements subvert the coloniality of the epistemic agenda (and corresponding material conditions) of the current ruling BJP party - Hindutva - as well as more broadly resisting the coloniality of the post-1947 nation-state of India. As such, my research argues that India's credentials as existing independently of colonialism ought to be reconsidered. 

My research is funded by the AHRC Techne DTP.
