Anu Sabhlok is trained as an architect, feminist scholar and geographer. Issues of identity and space in the ‘developing world’ context are central to her work. Her doctoral work at Penn State focused on the role of informal sector women in the construction(s) of identity amidst heightened nationalism and economic liberalization in Gujarat, India. She volunteered alongside and conducted ethnographic work with women relief workers in camps after the Hindu-Muslim riots in 2002 Gujarat. For Anu, her teaching, research and activism form part of the same continuum; they share the same goals: to push the boundaries of established disciplines, of entrenched societal norms, and to seek transformation towards social justice.
