Gopal Guru is a professor at the Centre for Political Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, in New Delhi. His research interests are on Indian Politics and contemporary social and political theory. He has published on issues of equality, social justice and dignity. His most recent edited work Humiliation: Claims and Context (Oxford University Press, 2009), a pioneering work in the field of political and moral theory, explores the complex and varied meanings, contexts, forms, and languages of humiliation within an interdisciplinary framework. While humiliation as a theme has found expression in both nationalist and socio-political thought in modern India, this is the first time it has been systematically studied.
