I grew up in Kolkata, India and studied for a BA in English at Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi University. Later, I pursued an MA in Comparative Literature at SOAS, University of London. As a student of literature, I grew deeply interested in the subversive potential and the community value of protest poetry. Through my PhD in English at Cambridge, I seek to explore the literary and cultural movements of the protest poem in the postcolonial metropolis. I find this examination increasingly relevant in light of recent worldwide resistance networks, which express international solidarity through the literary text. Through this project, I hope to not only find interventional ways of thinking about the protest poem, but also to find methodologies for making the literature classroom a socially transformative space.(she/her)
