Dr Sandeep Bakshi

  • Associate Professor in Decolonial, Postcolonial and Queer Studies, LARCA/Université Paris Cité
  • Dr Sandeep Bakshi’s research foregrounds the critical significance of intersecting lines in queer and decolonial studies. After being awarded a PhD from the School of English, University of Leicester, UK in queer and postcolonial representations of South Asia, Dr Bakshi currently researches transnational queer and decolonial enunciation of knowledge. He has developed two connected strands outlining narratives of decolonisation, including curriculum and pedagogy, and queer of colour critique and its attendant concern of non-normativity as practice of resisting all forms of domination.
  • Dr Bakshi coordinates two research seminars, ‘Peripheral Knowledges’ and ‘Empires, Souths, Sexualities’, and heads the ‘Gender and Sexuality Studies’ research group at LARCA. He is also co-editor of Decolonizing Sexualities: Transnational Perspectives, Critical Interventions (Oxford: Counterpress, 2016), Decolonial Trajectories, a special issue of Interventions (2020), and the French language publication, Qu’est-ce que l’intersectionnalité? Dominations plurielles: Sexe, classe et race (2021). He has published on queer and race problematics in postcolonial literatures and cultures, and is one of the founding members and coordinators of the Decolonizing Sexualities Network.
