Tulasi Srinivas, professor of Anthropology, Religion and Transnational Studies in the Marlboro Institute of Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies, was selected as a research associate in the Women’s Studies in Religion Program at Harvard Divinity School.

She will spend the 2022-2023 academic year at Harvard working on a book-length project exploring the role of gender, caste, and religion in climate justice initiatives.

Her project is titled The Runaway Goddess: Water, Gender and Caste in a Climate Apocalypse.

In her project, Srinivas will highlight the “paradox between Hinduism’s view of water as female, sacred and sentient, and the endemic pollution of water resources and climate- driven drought in contemporary India,” according to Women’s Studies in Religion Program website.
