Reimagining Citizenship: The politics of India’s amended citizenship laws
Dr. Indrajit Roy awarded AHRC funding
Dr Indrajit Roy has been awarded AHRC funding for his very exciting and novel project "Reimagining Citizenship: The politics of India’s amended citizenship laws".
The project aims to research the emergent reimaginations of citizenship in India in the context of the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) enacted recently.
It draws on arts and humanities research that have distinctively advanced our understandings of the ways in which people reimagine citizenship.
The project will be implemented in collaboration with public intellectuals, film-makers, academics, activists, and poets in India and the UK.
Co-investigators include Dr. Harsh Mander, Ms. Natasha Badhwar, Professor Mujibur Rehman, Dr. K Ravi Raman, Dr. Mohsin Alam, and Mr. Abdul Kalam Azad as well as a team of postdoctoral researchers using digital ethnographies, emotional testimonies, and transformative story-telling.
