Navjit Kaur

NavitNavjit Kaur received her BA in geography from University of Delhi and MA in sociology from Delhi School of Economics. Kaur is interested in the many lives of money post the event of demonetization in India. How does a form of money lend itself to be semanticized weaving a complex web of social, moral economies around itself is the focus of her research. These shifting semantics coupled with an affective vocabulary lend to emergent fiscal subjectivities in India. Kaur has also worked with phulkari embroiderers in Punjab, to understand the work ethic of people labelled as craftsmen.
