Department of Anthropology
Till to date, I have had the opportunity to take institutional training in anthropology from the department of anthropology, University of Dhaka during the mid 90s and from the department of sociology and anthropology, UNSW in the late 2000s. However, as a student of a fieldwork oriented knowledge tradition I believe that my institutional training has constantly been challenged and hence reshaped by the fieldworks that I have conducted over the last two and a half decades. As an anthropologist I have a diverse set of research interests that mainly include: ethnicity, identity and marginality; development and developmentalism; critical turns in anthropological theories; development of new methods for mapping and communicating ‘invisible’ social processes and last but not the least, literary anthropology that aims to investigate the convergence between ethnography and literature.Read less
