About The Author
Pushpanjali is currently teaching at the Department of Social work, University of Delhi. She has also worked extensively in the remote regions of Jharkhand, with Self-Help groups and grassroots level people’s collectives in the area of sustainable livelihoods and natural resource management. She is an avid observer of issues of exclusions, marginalization and fundamental inequities inherent in the social structure and the way it shapes the aspirations and struggles of the people on the margin. Her doctoral work is based on spatiality of Social Protest Movements and intends to study enhanced processes of marginality amongst peripheral spaces and people. It aims to explore how sites of protest can be opportunities for ordinary people to connect to larger political structure. Her special areas of interest include Social Movements, Tribal Issues and Rural Livelihoods. Gender and it’s intersectionality with other marginalization is her major research interest. Engagement with critical feminist voices remains the core to her research interest and practice.
