Ninad Pandit is a doctoral candidate in the Department of History. Trained as an Architect, Urban Planner and a Historian of South Asia, Ninad's interests revolve around radical politics, the history of development, the history of Marxism and the Left, and liberalism in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
His dissertation project, tentatively titled "Bombay Radicals," will examine the emergence of mass politics as a form of anti-colonial struggle in early twentieth century Bombay with the goal of rethinking the idea of ‘radicalism’ in Colonial India, as well as clarifying the idea of "the Left" under colonialism.
Ninad holds a professional degree in Architecture from KRVIA, Mumbai University, a Master of City Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an MA in History from Princeton.
