Lakshmi Arya


Dr Lakshmi Arya has recently completed a Ph.D. from the Centre for Historical Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. Her doctoral research on rape laws and trials in colonial times (British India and princely Mysore, 1860 – 1947) has engaged with the possibilities of historicizing discourses of rape and consent, and with the questions of universal citizenship that a uniform law such as that of rape in post / colonial India raises. Her current research interests are rethinking dominant narratives of Indian state-formation and political philosophy
