Aparna Parikh

Postdoctoral Fellow, Andrew W. Mellon

Aparna Parikh is a feminist urban geographer focusing on gendered dimensions of globalization, environmental change, and labor dynamics in relation to urbanization in South Asia. Her current research examines intimate acts of informality and social reproduction to analyze capitalist patriarchy. She also analyzes how tensions between labor and leisure produce gaps within the operating of these global systems, and the role of leisure for liberatory change.
