Akanksha Mehta

Dr Akanksha Mehta is a Lecturer in Gender, Sexuality, Race and Cultural Studies at the Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies and the co-director of the Centre for Feminist Research at Goldsmiths, University of London. She teaches modules that explore feminist, queer, postcolonial, and decolonial knowledge productions on empire, nation, violence, and everyday politics. Her recent research ('Right-Wing Sisterhood') used ethnography, narrative writing, and visual practice to examine the everyday politics and violence of Hindu Nationalist women in India and Israeli Zionist settlers in Palestine. She is transforming this work into a monograph and is also a photographer.
