    Sandipto Dasgupta

    Profile

    My research is in the history of modern political and social thought, especially the political theory of empire, decolonization, and postcolonial presents. My book manuscript, Legalizing the Revolution (under contract with Cambridge University Press), reconstructs the institutionalization of nascent postcolonial futures through a historical study of the Indian constitution making experience.

    Before coming to The New School, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and the British Academy, and taught at Ashoka and Columbia Universities.
