In order to promote focused and original research, ICAS:MP consists of a Core Module and six Thematic Modules. The Core Module (CM) will function as the integrative centre of ICAS:MP, as a space for the reconstruction of historical entanglements and for the comparison of articulations of ‘the political’ across both regions and thematic fields. The Thematic Modules (TM) focus on the following key fields in which the political has taken shape in the last century:

TM1: History as a Political Category

TM2: Labour as a Political Category

TM3: Critiques and Renewals of Democracy

TM4: Normative Conflicts and Transformations

TM5: The Challenge of Gender

TM6: Political Economy of Growth and Distribution

TM7: Media and the Constitution of the Political (2021-2024, currently in preparation)

Parent Module/PM (retired): Poverty and Education


The Thematic Modules are coordinated by the following colleagues:

TM1: Profs. Andreas Gestrich (GHIL) and Shail Mayaram (CSDS);

TM2: Profs. Ravi Ahuja (CeMIS) and Rana Behal (Delhi University);

TM3: Profs. Srirupa Roy (CeMIS), Amita Baviskar (IEG/JNU) and Rupa Viswanath (CeMIS);
