Bio: Alpa Shah is a social anthropologist at Goldsmiths College, University

She is interested in inequality and efforts to address it. She
has drawn on more than a decade of field research in India to explore
how marginalised people experience indigenous rights activism and
Adivasi politics; poverty, the developmental state and corruption;
seasonal casual labour migration and transformations in the agrarian
economy; the state, education and positive action policies; and the
radical left and emancipatory politics, notably the Maoist movement.

She is the author of In the Shadows of the State: Indigenous Politics,
Environmentalism and Insurgency in Jharkhand, India. Durham and
