Simona Sawhney received her PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of California, Irvine, where she wrote my PhD dissertation under the supervision of Professor J. Hillis Miller. Sawhney taught in the Department of Comparative Literature at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and in the Department of Asian Languages and Literatures at the University of Minnesota before coming to IIT Delhi. At present she am most interested in learning and thinking at the intersections of political and psychoanalytic theory. For the past few years Simona Sawhney has been engaged in studying the work of Bhagat Singh and his comrades. She teaches courses on feminist theory, political theory, and Indian literature.
