About the speaker

Ashvina is a doctoral candidate in Cultural Anthropology at Southern Methodist University. In 2015 and 2017 she conducted research in New Delhi on Rohingya refugees displaced by conflict in Myanmar. Her dissertation focuses on expanding definitions of political human security to capture the vital role of modern democracies in creating security for urban refugees. Issues of subjective identities, gendered economies, legal status and democratic tenants lay at the foundation of her analysis. Other research interests include issues of statelessness, citizenship, and refugee youth resilience.
