Feb. 22 Megan Moodie: “We Were Adivasis: Collective Aspiration in an Indian Scheduled Tribe”

Professor Moodie studies the sociality engendered by legal and economic projects for uplift and empowerment, including affirmative action, microfinance, and gender-based rights assertions. Her in-progress book, based on ethnographic work with the Dhanka, examines the gendered impact of affirmative action-based upward mobility.

Megan Moodie is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at UCSC.
