Pooja Satyogi joined Ambedkar University in July 2017. Between 2003-2017, she taught Political Science at the Lady Shri Ram College, University of Delhi. Her interdisciplinary doctoral work spans across the fields of cultural anthropology, policing, criminology and urban studies of governance. Her work examines the relationship between the law and the police in the Special Protection Unit for Women and Children (Unit/Cell), Delhi. More specifically, she is interested in an exploration of how law and the police co-constitute each other. In her future research project she would like to explore the interconnections between the pedagogy of police training, policing as a labour question and policing practices in the city of Delhi. She is currently working on her book manuscript titled Intimate Public Spaces: Policing “Domestic Cruelty” in Women’s Cells, Delhi.
