Sushmita Nath

Visiting Faculty of Political Science, Ashoka University

Ph.D. Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi

Dr Nath is visiting professor for political science at Ashoka university. She is a political theorist with a keen interest in themes related to modern social and political theories of empire, decolonisation, and post-colonial democracy. With a focus on modern and contemporary India, her research has engaged with debates on secularism and secularity, religion and law, and populism and democracy. She is particularly interested in studying these themes in relation to the still developing field of comparative political theory and the currently flourishing field of global intellectual history.

Dr Nath’s first monograph, The Secular Imaginary: Gandhi, Nehru and the Idea(s) of India, sought to study ostensibly Western concepts, such as secularism, secularisation and secularity, in a non-Western society like India without assuming them to be simply derivative of Western modular forms or colonial legacies. She has published on themes related to religion and secularity, and Indian political thought in journals like Studies in Religion, ASIEN, and South Asia Chronicle. She has a PhD in political science from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, and has received doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships from Freie Universität, Berlin, Leipzig University, and Humboldt University, Berlin.
