Tommaso Bobbio. I obtained my PhD in History of South Asia at Royal Holloway, University of London, in 2010 with a thesis investigating dynamics of urban socio/spatial change in Ahmedabad in relation to issues of citizenship and the rise of collective violence. The core of my research is located in India. My interests span across three main themes: 1) issues of social and spatial marginalisation, the understanding and practice of rural/urban relations amongst marginal inhabitants of the city, as well as the creation and theorisation of urban citizenship across the twentieth century; 2) the relationship between narratives of history, collective memory and nationalism through the production and preservation of heritage; 3) the rise of public health a “tool ofo social control” in colonial South Asia, the impact of diseases and famines in the encounter beween the colonial and the local in early nineteenth-century India and the long-term socio-cultural, political, economic and spatial effects on the dynamics of urban expansion. Beside a number of articles in peer-reviewed journals, I published a monograph in 2015 - Urbanisation, Citizenship and Conflict in India (Routledge 2015) - which investigated the interconnection of political, social, and economic forces that contributed to foster tensions and to modify the urban space.
