Professor Shneiderman is a socio-cultural anthropologist working in the Himalayan regions of Nepal, India and China (especially the Tibetan Autonomous Region). Her research addresses the relationships between political discourse, ritual practice, cultural performance and cross-border migration in producing contemporary ethnic identities. Since 2009 she has been involved in a project entitled “Inequality and Affirmative Action in South Asia: Current Experiences and Future Agendas in India and Nepal,” which will hold its final conference in Kathmandu in July 2012. We talk with her about that project and her research on inequality and affirmative action.
