My research in Nepal (since 1981) has encompassed religion and ritual, social organization, ethnicity, history, activism, democratization, borderlands diaspora, and migration. Current research focuses on caste, class, and culture, including the position of Dalits (ex-Untouchables). Other research projects in which I have been involved are listed below.
