Mr. Qasim has recently completed an MA in Social and Political Thought from the University of Sussex, UK with distinction. He also has an M.Phil. degree in political science from Forman Christian College, Lahore. Mr. Qasim has three main areas of interest: critical theory, decolonial theory, and political sociology. His MA at the University of Sussex was focused on critical theory. In his thesis, Qasim attempted to present decolonial theory’s critique of Eurocentrism of Frankfurt School Critical Theory. He also presented the same research in a conference, Critical Theory in (a time of) Crisis, organized by the Universities of Brighton and Sussex, UK. In his M.Phil. degree, Qasim did ethnographic research on the peasants’ resistance in rural Punjab. The thesis was focused to explore the content of the peasants’ resistance and its implication for wider political change in the country. Qasim has presented the same research at the conference organized by the University of Chicago.
