Megan Moodie

Megan Moodie is associate professor of Anthropology, specializing in feminist political and legal anthropology and experimental ethnographic writing, at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Her academic book, We Were Adivasis: Aspiration in an Indian Scheduled Tribe, based on over a decade of fieldwork on indigeneity, gender, and affirmative action in Rajasthan, India, was published by the University of Chicago Press in 2015 and her scholarly articles appear in journals such as American Ethnologist, Signs, and Film Quarterly, among many others. Moodie’s popular essays on motherhood, art, politics, and illness can be found in literary journals such as MUTHA, Hip Mama, and the Chicago Quarterly Review, as well as the public anthropology site SAPIENS.org. At work on a novel set in India and the United States, much of Moodie’s work pushes the boundaries between ethnography and fiction, biography, and reflective essay.
