Tanroop Sandhu



Tanroop Sandhu is a PhD candidate studying the political thought of South Asian leftists in the diaspora during the interwar period, under the supervision of Chris Moffat and Martyn Frampton. His research seeks to analyze the contributions that figures like Rajani Palme Dutt and Shapurji Saklatvala, among others, made to communist theory and anti-imperialist politics in both India and the imperial core. Tanroop completed his BA in History, and his MA in the Tri-University History Program, at the University of Waterloo.


Tanroop previously taught on HIST4321- Unravelling Britain: British History Since 1801, and in the Fall 2023 term will be teaching on HST4622 – Global Encounters: Conquest and Culture in World History.
