Dr. Amrita Ghosh is a researcher at SASNET working on the new project "A Nation and its Fault Lines". She has worked on a postdoc at Linnaeus University, Center of Concurrences in Colonial and Postcolonial Studies. During the postdoc she worked on emerging literature, films and visual texts on and from Kashmir, representing the conflict in myriad ways. Her monograph on this research project, titled, Kashmir’s Necropolis: New Literature and Visual Texts is going to come out next year (2022) with Lexington Books, Rowan & Littlefield, USA.

Apart from that, Ghosh is the co-editor of the coming anthology: Tagore and Yeats: A Postcolonial Reenvisioning (2021), soon to be published by Brill publications.  This volume encompasses various themes of translation, authorship, the Nobel controversy between the two writers, and also focuses on art, performativity and rethinking modernism in the two iconic writers. 

Right after her Phd, Dr. Ghosh was a full time lecturer in the English Department, at Seton Hall University, USA (2012-2017). Dr. Ghosh has a PhD in Postcolonial literature and theory, specializing in Partition Literature, from Drew University, New Jersey, USA. She has had a fellowship at Cornell University, Critical Theory School during summer 2008. In her doctoral dissertation, she studies the representation of borders and border crossings by human and nonhuman subjects in the aftermath of the Partition and how such Partition narratives rewrite the nation-state through the border subjects. 

Dr. Ghosh has been published in the field of postcolonial and decolonial studies, gender and agency, memory and nostalgia, colonialism and representation, and border studies, especially the Indo-Bangladeshi borderlands and enclaves.  She also is the co-editor of Cerebration, a peer-reviewed, biannual literary journal that strives to bring in academic and non academic circles in an exchange through significant topics in a transcultural space.
