 Simona Sawhney

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.

The CHR in the time of a global pandemic

In line with protocols introduced by government towards the prevention and containment of the COVID-19 virus, the CHR suspended its public events, seminars, and general fellowship program until further notice.  We wish CHR fellows, students, artists, colleagues and friends, as well as our partners and funders in South Africa and across the world much strength and compassion in these difficult times.
