My current project tracks the relationship between art and activism in song in South India, from the music of political theater and revolutionary film, to emergent genres like alternative rock. I’m also researching different ways in which musical and culinary practices intersect, an area that I’ve recently explored with students in a seminar on gastromusicology.
