Shivangi Pareek is a Ph.D. student in the Anthropology Department. Her research engages with the political economy of contemporary ‘tribal’ material culture in India. With support from the South Asian Studies Council at the Macmillan Centre, she has undertaken pre-dissertation fieldwork over two summers in Madhya Pradesh and Delhi. During this time she focused on the production-consumption of contemporary Gond Adivasi art and tracing its circulation across museums, galleries, workshops and markets in Bhopal and Delhi. She is currently preparing to begin dissertation fieldwork in January 2019 and write an ethnography that examines the changing evaluations around ‘tribal’ expressive culture in India with expanding markets and transforming state engagements.
