Kaveri Qureshi (PhD University of London) is Associate Researcher at Sussex University and John Fell Research Fellow at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology at Oxford University. She has diverse interests in the anthropology of the South Asian diaspora and both sides of the border of Punjab. Her core research is into the life course, with doctoral work on ageing and chronic illness and postdoctoral work on youth and marriage. She has also worked on migration, translocalism and diasporic politics. She is currently working on a monograph on Indian Sikh youth, engaging critically with the idea of code-switching and its use as a metaphor for young people's cultural productions. She is also carrying out ESRC funded fieldwork in London on the neglected issue of marital instability among South Asian couples, representing the first substantive ethnographic research on this area.
