Bio/Research

My current research focuses on religious conversion in the context of the revival of Buddhism in Karnataka, South India. Two major themes have emerged from this research thus far: the reconfiguration of the stigma of untouchability, and the assertion of a counter history of India. The book, provisionally entitled We Were Always Buddhist: Dalit Conversion and Sexual Modernity, will build on some of the central concern of my first book—the politics of sexuality, religiosity and postcolonial governance— extending them into questions of embodiment and the uses of history.
