CSAS Lecture Series | ‘Marriage’, ‘Trafficking’ and the Transnational Family: Moral and Legal Regulation of Nineteenth Century Women’s Mobility in the Western Indian Ocean
Farhana Ibrahim is Associate Professor of Sociology and Social Anthropology at the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. Her research interests include the study of borders, migration and ethnographic perspectives on the state. Her book, Settlers, Saints, and Sovereigns: An Ethnography of State Formation in Western India (Routledge 2009) was an ethnographic study of mobility and place making by Muslim pastoralists along the Kutch-Sindh border in the light of resurgent Hindu nationalist discourses in Gujarat in the early 2000s. Her current book project looks at issues of gender, citizenship, surveillance and security in cross border migration in Kutch.
