I have lived and worked in North America for about two decades now, and my research continues to be animated by activism, performance, and politics in South Asia and India more specifically. My first book is entitled Development Dramas: Reimagining Rural Political Action in eastern India (Routledge, 2010), and the second is forthcoming and is entitled Politicizing Creative Economy: Activism and a Hunger called Theatre (University of Illinois Press).
This is the link for Umangpoetry and it is a digital poetry blog which translates poetry across languages in South Asia and reconnects to the shared and cosmopolitan histories and creativity of our region, which is of course divided as nations and along religious and linguistic lines.
Burning Question? Favourite quote? Words to live by?
Try not to refuse the possibility of creativity and potential even though it seems under siege all around me.
