About Swati Parashar

PhD (Politics and International Relations): Lancaster University, UK.
MA (Politics and International Relations): Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India.
BA (History Honors): Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi University, India.

I am an Associate Professor at the School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg. My previous academic appointments have been at Monash University and the University of Wollongong in Australia and at the University of Limerick in Ireland. Prior to my academic career I worked as a policy analyst in counter terrorism research in India and Singapore.

My research and teaching interests are in critical security and war studies, feminist and postcolonial international relations, women militants and combatants, gender, violence and development in South Asia. I welcome collaborative research opportunities and supervision in these areas.

I write social and political commentatories in various local and international media outlets and my public engagements focus on gender, conflict and violence against women. I run my own blog (www.kaalratri.com) on women’s experiences promoting the idea of ‘solidarity beyond borders’.

Originally from India, I am widely travelled and have lived in multicultural contexts in Asia, Europe and Australia. I am an enthusiastic test cricket fan and occasionally dabble in score predictions and gendered analysis of this most colonial of sports. Life outside the academic world is enriched by Hindustani classical music and other cultural pursuits.

I am fluent in Hindi and English, can understand Bengali and Urdu and am learning Swedish.
