Jaskiran Dhillon (PhD, University of Pennsylvania) is Assistant Professor of Global Studies and Anthropology at The New School. She writes, “I approach my work with a desire to bring an ethnographic sensibility to the study of the unique relationship among education, politics, and society, and to apply my knowledge to contemporary problems around the globe (to act as well as think). I am passionate about teaching and invite my students to pursue an intellectual journey that locates issues of power, knowledge, epistemology, place, culture, and history at the center of theoretical and empirical inquiries into education, broadly conceived. In an effort to bring conceptual ideas and theories into conversation with everyday lived realities on the ground, I am piloting a study abroad/civic engagement course on Cambodia and the politics of education and development.”
