Veena Das?
« on: October 24, 2013, 05:09:19 PM »
In some of my reading Veena Das keeps popping up.

Anyone read any of her work?

I post this worrying that I am becoming more and more Achronos by doing so.

I've come across a few titles in preview on Google Books. I like her style, but don't particularly connect with her subjects.
