Dean of the Faculty


Dwaipayan Sen

Assistant Professor of Asian Languages and Civilizations and History

Dwaipayan Sen’s research interests include the history of modern South Asia and Bengal, and caste politics and movements in those regions.  He thinks of teaching as a privilege and opportunity to facilitate students in developing their own intellectual and academic concerns.  He is drawn to Amherst College because he values sustained engagement between undergraduate students and faculty—one of the hallmarks of a liberal arts education—in fostering the critical understanding, exploration, and production of knowledge.
