(Re)presenting Indian Women Outside India
June 18, 2018
In this issue of India in Transition, Ravinder Kaur, Professor of Sociology and Social Anthropology, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, and Spring 2018 CASI Visiting Scholar, examines the discourse around skewed sex ratios and migrant brides to highlight the gross over exaggerations made by western media and strident Indian activists speaking from locations in the North.
Additionally, Professor Kaur and her husband, Surjit S. Bhalla, were interviewed on PBS NewsHour on May 31, 2018 to discuss Bhalla's new book, The New Wealth of Nations. (Their interview begins at the 31 minute mark)
