Shivani Kaul

Shivani Kaul is a member of the Global Future Health project, a PhD candidate in anthropology at the University of Amsterdam, and a visiting research student at the Royal University of Bhutan. Her family history and feminist conflict transformation work in Delhi and Kashmir root her research interest in how science, health, and development might be done differently in settings that have not been directly colonized, like Bhutan. In her work she draws from multidisciplinary training between art and science: political science and South Asia studies at Wellesley College (BA), global health equity at Harvard Medical School, arts and aesthetics in JNU (MA), media studies in Sherubtse College, biosocial anthropology at UCL (MRes), and mental health and wellbeing at Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust (PgCert). Through collective experiments in authorship and research practice, she is also keen to open up how authority is done.
