I am Ph.D. candidate in the History of Art Department at the University of California, Berkeley interested in art, craft and culture of South Asia and the South Asian diaspora. My research focuses on global histories of collecting and exhibiting South Asian objects, art made during the British Raj, and the politics and art historical predicament of craft.
Inspired by the Hindi word for conversation or chit chat (बातचीत), baatcheet.org is a space to share ideas and events related to South Asian art in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Join the conversation!
