In English


Richa’s writing in English has engaged a range of topics and themes pertaining to postcolonial development; feminist epistemologies; grassroots social movements; and migration, diaspora, place and identity. She has co/authored or co/edited four books and over a hundred essays and articles in English in scholarly journals as well as in activist fora. Her writing blends genres and styles in order to trouble the traditionally invoked boundaries among theory, storytelling, poetry, and journalism. This, for Richa, has been an important mode of engaging critics and interlocuters from a variety of locations and to enact responsibility in the multiple worlds and struggles which enable her work.
