Latha Varadarajan joined the SDSU faculty after receiving a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Minnesota in January 2005. Her research focuses on the intersection of international relations theory, international political economy, international security and South Asian Politics. Some of her research questions include: the politics of transnationalism (specifically state-diaspora relations); the connections between neoliberal economic restructuring and national security policies; the meaning and relevance of postcolonial struggles; and the debates surrounding the contemporary manifestations of imperialism.  Varadarajan currently teaches courses on national security and international relations, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
