PhD (Law) Student, University of Sussex
Swastee Ranjan is a doctoral candidate at the School of Law, Politics and Sociology, University of Sussex. Her project explores the role of law in describing the affective and the aesthetic experience of living in the city. Inspired by recent scholarship on new materialism and speculative realism, she engages with questions of environmental aesthetics, affect theory, protest aesthetics and art in public spaces. She is especially concerned with the ways in which spatial justice can be theorised through these approaches. Swastee completed her M.Phil from Centre for the Study of Law and Government (CSLG) at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) at New Delhi. She has previously been a student anchor of Law and Social Sciences Research Network (LASSnet) at CSLG, New Delhi.
