Hari Ramesh is a College Fellow in Social Studies at Harvard University. He conducts research in political theory and the history of political thought, with particular interests in democratic theory, conceptualizations of social oppression, and the intersections of American, Afro-modern, and South Asian political thought. His current book project draws on rich historical and philosophical connections between John Dewey, B.R. Ambedkar, and Brown v. Board of Education in order to offer an original account of the compatibility of coercive state action with a radical vision of democracy. Hari received his Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University in 2019 and holds a B.A. in English and Political Science magna cum laude from Williams College. In Spring 2020, he will teach a junior tutorial on Caste, Race, and Democracy.
