Tullia Jack new guest researcher at SASNET

During her month-long stay at SASNET, she will continue to work on her paper on cleanliness in India.
Tullia Jack

Tullia Jack received her Ph D. from the Department of Sociology, Lund University, and she is a lecturer at the Department of Society, Culture and Identity, Malmö University. Her paper on cleanliness in India is based on interviews she conducted in Mysore, Southern India, talking to people about what cleaning they do in day to day life. During the interviews it became apparent that people living in Mysore associated cleanliness with being a good person, and having the right kind of values. Being dirty on the other hand was seen as a sign of being uneducated and having undesirable values. For Tullia this is really interesting as caste-based exclusions are becoming increasingly politically unsavory. Is cleanliness emerging as a new form of social ranking? 

Feel free to contact Tullia or visit her in her office at SASNET, Biskopsgatan 5.
