Meet the Author Series: Piya Chatterjee

Piya Chatterjee is an assistant professor in Women’s Studies who joined the department in 1994.  She is trained as a historical anthropologist of South Asia, though her interests are eclectic and wide ranging.  She comes to UCR from the University of Chicago where she received her Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology.  She has always been interested in the relationship between community work and scholarly production that is based on research outside the university. Accountability and the possibility of coalitional work across such divides are primary concerns.  Among her published works is A Time for Tea: Women, Labor, and Post/Colonial Politics on an Indian Plantation (Duke University Press, 2001).
