Anveshi draws on researchers with both academic and activist experience. Knowledge of the discipline or the field, and actual life-experiences become the basis of research, thus reaching beyond the confines of the formal academic system. Today we have a significant presence in a number of fields, particularly health and health care systems (with a focus on health policy, reproductive and mental health), law (especially the culture of everyday adjudication), education and literacy (higher education, normativity and difference in the culture of schooling), development studies, Dalit feminism, minority cultures, literature and cinema (in the academy as well as in the public domain) and political-cultural theory.
The ongoing engagement in these various fields has developed and consolidated into six research initiatives at Anveshi today.
- Dalits and Minorities
- Critical Development Studies
- Health and Health Care Systems
- Law and Critical Legal Theory
- Public Domain and Outreach
Reports and other publications resulting from completed projects can be found in this section as well as in Publications.
