Professor Charusheela's teaching aims to make the classroom a space for critical thinking and creative experimentation. This is organized into three broad categories: skill development, active learning, and integration of interdisciplinary approaches and materials. Professor Charusheela wants her students to be critical thinkers, but beyond that, she wants them to gain a sense of themselves as capable producers of knowledge, to inspire them with a passion for learning and knowledge creation in whatever forms work for them. Professor Charusheela believes her role is to help them make that journey.
Research/Teaching Areas: Questions of economic subjectivity, Gender, Development, Identity, Postcoloniality/Globalization.
