I work at the Department of English and the School of Women’s Studies at Jadavpur University, Calcutta. I teach Renaissance drama, women's writing, and sexuality and queer studies. I have led national and international projects on gender representation in school textbooks, sexuality education, women's higher education, homeless women, women in the Panchayati Raj and in Self Help groups as well as HIV positive women and children. I have been been closely associated with Sappho for Equality since its inception.
