Madhura Damle

Assistant Professor

My primary research interest is politics of language, culture and identity and in my doctoral thesis, I looked at print and politics of language in colonial Western India. I have also been researching on and teaching Indian political thought. I have translated a few poems by Jotirao Phule, and I am immensely interested in the work and writings of Phule and other leaders of non-Brahmin movement. Recently I have been working on Savarkar and language cleansing. My research interests also include social, cultural and intellectual history of modern India. Though trained in political science, I am immensely interested in the discipline of linguistics.
