CeMIS welcomes Prof. Ritajyoti Bandyopadhay as a visiting ICAS fellow


Ritajyoti Bandyopadhay is Assistant Professor for History at IISER Mohali (Indian Institute of Science Education and Research). As a member of the module "Critiques and Renewals of Democracy" in our BMBF-funded International Centre for Advanced Studies "Metamorphoses of the Political" (ICAS:MP), he joined CeMIS a two-months visiting fellowship. His earlier and ongoing research projects explore themes in informality, infrastructure technologies, urban history and governmentality studies in late-colonial and postcolonial India. He is particularly invested in studying the materiality of mass politics as India transitioned from imperial sovereignty to popular sovereignty. He divides his time between academia and activism, and tries to work at their critical interface, making use of one context to ask questions of another.
