Tullia Jack

Dr. Tullia Jack will spend one month at SASNET to continue to work on her paper about cleanliness in India. The paper 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?
