Ahona Palchoudhuri teaches Critical Writing at the Young India Fellowship. Her course aims to equip students with analytical tools to engage with debates concerning anthropological concepts such as gender, personhood, and human sexuality, within cultural frameworks and ethnographic accounts from a diverse range of settings. Her own academic interests lie in ideas of kinship, performance, and music. Ahona studied Literature at St. Stephen’s College, after which she earned an MSc. in Social Anthropology from the London School of Economics. Her master’s thesis titled ‘Modernity and Minding One’s Own Business’ studied family businesses in India against a backdrop of the theoretical marginalization of kinship in western definitions of modernity. After her Master’s, Ahona worked as a Research and Teaching Fellow at Ashoka University.
