Swapna Liddle
Swapna Liddle is an author and historian with a specialization in the history of Delhi. Her interest in Delhi began with an examination of cultural change under early colonial rule, the subject of a PhD thesis. More recently she has been taking a longer view of the city, looking at a range of questions, such as the development of an ‘aura’ of imperial power, and city planning in the context of specific polities such as the Mughal and Colonial, and the evolution of spaces in the context of multiple identities. Many of these questions also closely impinge on present-day concerns about ‘heritage’, its definition, ownership and management, issues that Swapna is interested in. She has been raising awareness about the need to preserve the diverse heritage of Delhi, among stakeholders and the general public, over the last two decades. She is the author of Connaught Place and the Making of New Delhi, Chandni Chowk: The Mughal City of Old Delhi, and Delhi: 14 Historic Walks.
