Shanti Parikh

Professor, Arts & Sciences, African & African American Studies (AFAS) and Anthropology

Shanti Parikh’s research focuses on race, gender, sexuality, and inequalities with particular interests in HIV, forms of care and intimacy, and unintended consequences of interventions. As an anthropologist who uses ethnographic methods, she is particularly interested in people’s everyday lives with historically produced forms of violence and creative modes of caring. Much of her research is in Uganda, East Africa, but she also focuses on the U.S.
