Upal Chakrabarti

Assistant Professor

My interests range over intellectual history, colonialism, political economy, agrarian studies, science studies, and governance. My doctoral work consisted of historical investigations into connections between political economy, science, agrarian governance, and regional property configurations in British India and imperial Britain in the nineteenth century. In the book, developed out of this work, I argue that the “local” needs to be understood as a conceptual formation generating, as concrete effects, entanglements between spatializable locales and non-localizable spaces.

I am starting some new work on practices of science in twentieth century India.
