About My Work
My PhD project focused on radical trade unions and making of labour politics at the Calcutta's docklands, and am currently editing it for a monograph publication. The next project examines maritime labour and the making of colonial dock neighbourhoods in the Indian Ocean littoral. It asks: how do we understand the emergence of the dock neighbourhood as a contradictory cosmopolitan context?
