Dr. B Kiranmayi

Associate Professor

My interests and involvements are wide ranging. However I have an enduring deep commitment and engagement with the open and distance learning mode. I still continue to work in Open University set up, albeit with many deviating trajectories that feed into the course and programmes offered at IGNOU. My research interests in Indian Diaspora, put me in transnational setting of home-abroad: This liminality of being at home and abroad offered me a vantage point and a lens with which to view social life and the issues thereof. My ever abiding interests in all things food—cooking and growing, among other things, has led me to undertake research in this area.
