Ananya Mukherjee Reed
My teaching and research focus primarily on the theme of human development, broadly defined. While the focus of much of my empirical work has been on South Asia, my current teaching and research focus on the broader theoretical issues related to development - and in particular the epistemology of development. Another area of my research examines the relationship between the corporate economy, globalization and human development. My most recent book Human Development and Social Power: Perspectives from South Asia, (part of a series on Human Development being produced by OXCIS, Oxford University, UK) (Routledge, London and New York 2008). I obtained my PhD (Economics and Public Policy) from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles and my MA in Economics from Calcutta, India. I have studied and taught in India, Germany, Hungary and the United States.
