I teach at the Department of History, University of Delhi. I studied History at St. Stephen’s College, University of Delhi for the B.A. (hons) and M.A., and completed my PhD at Columbia University, New York. I have been a Fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, and held Visiting Fellowships at the Centre for Study of Developing Studies, Delhi and the University of Cambridge, Cambridge. My interest in metaphysics, political-economy, jurisprudence, religion and imperialism has led to publications in the following journals: Indian Economic and Social History Review, Telos, Studies in History, Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research, Economic and Political Weekly, Cultural Critique, National Law School Review of India and the JMC Review. Apart from editing a special issue of Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences (IIAS Shimla) on ‘Ascertaining Certainty: Self and Cosmos’ (2013) I have published The Infinite Double: Persons/Things Empire/Economy (IIAS Shimla 2015). At Delhi University, I teach graduate courses on Revolutions, Political Thought, the Colonial Economy, Imperial Jurisprudence and Historiography and have guided research on Economic, Constitutionalist, Intellectual and Literary history.
