Sayak Dutta

Qualitative Researcher





Lack of Punctuality

Sayak has completed his graduation and Master’s degree in Geography from Calcutta University and Jawaharlal Nehru University respectively. He has further completed his M.Phil. degree from Jawaharlal Nehru University and is currently at the final stages of submitting his PhD from the same institute. Sayak has worked and published on an eclectic range of topics, but his core area of research lies in political geography, identity studies and urban governance. Although trained under an empirical-quantitative curriculum during his studies, Sayak’s personal research is based on qualitative methods and a humanistic understanding of society.

Sayak is born and brought up in Kolkata, West Bengal where he has completed his schooling and graduation; however, for the past 10 years he has been residing in New Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University campus. Bengali is Sayak’s mother tongue, but his higher education is conducted in English making him equally proficient in both languages; and he retains conversational fluency in Hindi as well.
