Clarinda Still is a lecturer in Modern Indian Studes for the MSc in Contemporary India, a Junior Research Fellow at St Antony's, Oxford, and a Research Associate in Anthropology. She trained as an anthropologist at Edinburgh University, UCL and the LSE and she has conducted ethnographic research among Dalits in South India. Her research considers the ways in which formal education, identity politics, state policies of reservation and local economic arrangements have altered the status of rural Dalits. It also looked at the effects of these changes on gender relations and the position of women. She is currently working on a book about Dalit women entitled 'The Imperatives of Honour: Dalit Women and Cultural Transformation in South India', due to be published by Social Science Press next year.
