Nazmul S. Sultan

Political Theorist


I am an incoming Junior Research Fellow at Christ’s College, University of Cambridge. My research interests include the history of anticolonial political thought, popular sovereignty, and empire and international thought. I completed my PhD in Political Science at the University of Chicago in July 2020. Focusing on colonial India, my dissertation reframes the problem of colonialism in the history of political thought and offers a new interpretation of the anticolonial democratic project. An article based on a chapter of the dissertation has appeared in the American Political Science Review.
