Assistant Professor

  • About
  • Research Summary

Parvaz graduated with a B.A. LL.B. (Hons.) from Jindal Global Law School in 2019 and postgraduate from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) London with a MA in Gender Studies. His dissertation thesis explored the state’s narratives on creation of normalcy and the outsourcing of violence by democracies. During his undergraduate degree, he worked with Centre for Human Rights Studies on a project mapping anti-sexual harassment policies and the working of internal complaints committees in Indian higher education institutions. He has also worked with human rights organisations, on matters surrounding denial of political rights and violations of human rights.  

Parvaz’s research and pedagogy is located in decolonising knowledge production, using feminist epistemologies. He is working on bringing activist practices and everyday ethical negotiations in conversation with urban aspirations and desires. To this end, his interdisciplinary and ethnographic research explores liberal multiculturalism, secularism, freedom in modernity and challenges the legacies of eurocentrism and americentrism.
