Guli’s Children: Film Screening and Discussion
(Cosponsored event with Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies)
Ritty Lukose is an Associate Professor at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study in New York University. Her teaching and research interests explore the relations between culture, politics, and economy as they manifest themselves in discourses and practices of gender across the varied terrain of globalization, especially as they impact contemporary South Asia. With a background in anthropology, she is currently interested in the relationship between Western, global and non-Western feminisms. Professor Lukose’s research has been funded by the American Institute of Indian Studies, the Fulbright Program, the Spencer Foundation, and the National Academy of Education, and she has published several book chapters and articles on this research in journals such as Cultural Anthropology, Social History, Social Analysis, and Anthropology, and Education Quarterly. Her book, Liberalization’s Children: Gender, Youth and Consumer Citizenship in Globalizing India, was published by Duke University Press in 2009 and co-published in India by Orient Blackswan in 2010. A co-edited book, South Asian Feminisms was published by Duke University Press (2012) and Zubaan, a leading feminist press in India. She teaches courses on globalization, India/South Asia, sex/gender and feminisms within global contexts, and ethnography.
