Associate Professor in the Anthropology of South Asia
Nayanika Mathur is an anthropologist who has worked previously on bureaucracy, development, and the state in India. My current interests are centred upon the study of climate change, human-animal relations, anthropological methods, and the Anthropocene. I have recently completed a book manuscript, Crooked Cats, that studies the climate crisis through changing human-big cat relations in India. I am developing a new project that is centred upon crafting methods that cross disciplines in order to capture the reality and future/s of climate change in the Himalaya.
For some of my work on the climate crisis and theorising the Anthropocene, see:
