Research Projects

Independent Research Projects undertaken by Faculty Chaitra Redkar:

=> Recently completed an independent research project ‘Political Biography of Sane Guruji’. The study uses archival sources to explore hitherto ignored contribution of Sane Guruji to the working class movement and peasants’ movement in Maharashtra in general and that in the East and West Khandesh in particular. This work also explores Sane Guruji’s thinking about Nationalism on the one hand and class – caste inequalities on the other. This work is now published in Marathi.

=> Completed an independent research project ‘Understanding non – party politics: A Case Study of Hind MazdoorSabha (HMS), RashtraSeva Dal and SamajwadiMahilaSabha (SMS). This project studied the politics of various socialist organizations which had deliberately refused to get labeled as front organizations of Socialist Party. Data was collected rom the extensive interviews with senior trade unionists and
socialist activists as well as from the back issues of Hind MazdoorPatrika, Seva Dal Patrika etc. Part of this research is published in form of an article.
