Deepali is a PhD candidate pursuing a certificate of advanced study in South Asia as well as Women and Gender Studies. She finds religion—both as an identity and an activity—to be an important axis to add to feminist intersectional analysis. Towards this end, she brings the theories of both religious studies and women’s studies together in her work on gender in Hindu temples in Gujarat. Her research interests include women's lived religion in India, feminist postcolonial studies, transnational feminism, and the anthropology of religion.
