Priti Ramamurthy's research is in conversation with:
Shirley Yee’s archival work on community economies in New York. We are both interested in how communities—cross cut by, in Yee's case, class and race, and, in Ramamurthy's, class and caste—come together in exchange relationships which are also the grounds for different expressions of gendered identities, desires, and indeed, what “economy” itself is.
Sasha Welland’s and Amanda Swarr’s research intersects with Ramamurthy's in the ways they all trouble the “transnational” in transnational feminist research. Through their ethnographic research in India, China and South Africa, based on epistemic and activist collaborations, they seek to expand the boundaries of feminist knowledge production and “area” studies.
The relationship of gendered identities, labor patterns and labor organizing, developmentalist states, and global political economy inform the research of Shuxuan Zhou, Jiwoon Yu-Lee, and Elizabeth Arreola Ramirez and Priti Ramamurthy.
South Asian Feminism, political economy, development, and gender formation in India are interests shared with Akanksha Misra and Chandan Reddy.
Transnational feminism in the US and global political economy is a shared interest of Lauren O’Laughlin and Priti Ramamurthy.
