Goldie Osuri is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Warwick. She is researching the relationship between sovereignty and human rights in Indian-occupied Kashmir.
Broadly her research lies at the intersections of Political Sociology, Critical Social and Cultural Theory, Critical Race and Whiteness Studies, and Media and Cultural Studies.
Insights learnt from solidarity with Indigenous quest for sovereignty in Australia continue to inform her interest and research in the area of sovereignty studies.
Her current research explores the form of sovereignty underpinning the activities of postcolonial nation-states as an unsustainable European colonial legacy.
Through an examination of the case of Indian-occupied Kashmir, she researches the ways in which Kashmiri struggles for self-determination reveal the necessity of paying attention to the coloniality of postcolonial nationalism.
