Arun Kumar

Lancaster University

    Arun Kumar is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Organisation, Work and Technology at Lancaster University. His research looks critically, and historically, at the role of corporate philanthropy in India's development and the on-going professionalisation of development organisations, and, more substantively, how one might use this as an entry to discuss the shifting conceptions of modernity and nation-building in postcolonial India. His thesis is tentatively titled "Philanthropy in Postcolonial India: Tatas' Giving for/to the Modern (Neoliberal) Nation." In a previous life, he worked on questions of disability, social accountability, and urban development.
