Nandita R. Sharma


Nandita Sharma is currently working on a SSHRC funded project entitled "Negotiating Late Capitalism as Non-Immigrant Labour in the U.S.: H-Category Temporary Visa Workers and US Society". This continues her interest in ideologies of nationalism and their importance to processes of globalization. She is also interested in the process of identity formation and the need to distinguish between imposed identities and those formed through relations of equality and justice.
