Dr. Lahiri’s research focuses on the nation as the product of collective cultural imagination and local action in South and Southeast Asia. My primary approach is ethnographic (i.e. based on fieldwork and personal immersion), and is informed by historical research and social theory. Dr. Lahiri’s ongoing projects include investigations of multilingual media, financial inclusion, and everyday money management amongst low and middle income residents of Delhi.
