Research Overview

Pallavi Banerjee's research interests are situated at the intersections of sociology of families, international immigration, gender/feminist theory and transnationalism. Empirically and theoretically, her research unravels specific structural processes through which the state, corporations, and other related institutions operate together as gender and labor regimes to reconfigure the lived experiences of minority and transnational families in public and private spheres. She is currently working on two research projects. The first involves a book manuscript that is tentatively titled Dismantling Dependence: Gendered Migration of Indian Professional Families and the Politics of Visa Regimes. A second project examines the family dynamics of South Asian immigrant women, particularly Muslim women across class locations, religious practices, immigration status, and motherhood.
