Gaurav C. Garg is a historian of modern South Asia, cities, mountains, and international development. He is currently working on two book projects. The first offers a fresh interpretation of urban political economy by exploring how business interests are spatialized and how the pursuit of such spatialized interests led to the divergent urban and economic fortunes of twentieth-century Calcutta and Bombay. The second is a global history of postwar urban crisis.
At Ashoka, Gaurav offers courses on urban history and studies, South Asian economic and business history, international development, and a course on the history of mountains and mountaineers which he aims to develop into a full-length book project.
