South Asia Studies Research Group
In an increasingly interconnected, frenetic and complex world, too often knowledge of what's going on outside is informed by soundbites and populist media reports. The South Asia Studies Research Group, which offers more nuanced perspectives, based on long-term, in-depth study, serves as a corrective to that, across a whole range of areas.
This Group aims to put regionally relevant research by Brunel anthropologists, development studies scholars, sociologists, historians, political scientists and others firmly on the map, through public roundtable events, seminars, writing workshops and other events. Members tackle issues such as:
- Ethnographic research of South Asia and its diasporas
- Regional development studies
- Infrastructure and mobility
- Education, learning and schooling
- Childhood and Youth
- Medical anthropology and Disability Studies
- The anthropology and politics of food
- Race and identity
- The State and social welfare
- South Asian history
- Performance, drama, and South Asian dance
The group also provides a research base for the development of cutting-edge South Asia specific programmes and teaching.
