Sociology Research


Garima is an urban ethnographer, with a regional focus on South Asia.

In her doctoral thesis, she studied the life and labor of young men and women at work in the fast-emerging private service economy in urban India. She examined how in the everyday experience of working in new types of service jobs, the staff begins to unravel the 'magic' of the new economy – learning about the web of fakery and trickery at its very core.

As part of her new research, she is curious to explore gendered experiences of affective orders and disorders within the space of the home and in relation to the family – focusing on kinship, conjugality, care, domesticity, good family/ bad family, madness, suicide, and such.

Garima completed her graduate studies in Oxford and undergraduate studies in Delhi.
