The Making of "Veer Savarkar": Methods for Writing an Intellectual History

This paper examines the conceptualization of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar as “Veer Savarkar” in the early decades of the twentieth century. It argues that Savarkar’s writings about heroism, bravery, and masculinity helped to shape his political subjectivity as “Veer Savarkar.” Savarkar’s engagement with contemporary methodological debates on biography, autobiography, and a history of ideas will also be examined.
