My doctoral research engages with already recorded visual and spoken testimonies of Shaheen Bagh protestors, predominantly Muslim women - mothers, grandmothers, neighbours - and children who occupied a public highway in Delhi for 101 continuous days between December 2019 and March 2020 as part of the nationwide anti-CAA movement in India.

Whilst the protests were catalysed by the right-wing Hindu nationalist BJP party’s passing of the Islamophobic Citizenship Amendment Act (2019) and the subsequent police brutality faced by students local to the Shaheen Bagh neighbourhood in South Delhi for protesting against its passing, I argue that protestors' praxis stretched far beyond this, towards intervening in an subverting the coloniality of the nation-state of India materially and epistemically. Thus, the praxis Shaheen Bagh offers hope for thinking, being, living, and doing otherwise.

My research is funded by the AHRC Techne DTP.
