David Singh is enrolled in a joint Ph.D. program at the University of East Anglia (UK) and the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) since 2019. Before this, he completed his B.A in political science at La Sorbonne University-Paris 1, and a M.A in international politics at Sciences po Bordeaux. His research interests focus largely on territorialization and land, resource extraction and green energy infrastructures. David’s Ph.D. dissertation analyses the territorial expansion of wind infrastructures in borderland Gujarat, and the underlying extraction, dispossession and destruction dynamics. He also discusses the issue of mediation and caste power in fixing large-scale wind power projects, the (un/re)making of space by identity politics and the emergence of resistance practices.
