Aneesh Aneesh is Assistant Professor of Sociology at UWM. He is the author of the book Virtual Migration: The Programming of Globalization (Duke, 2006) and has published articles in such journals as Current Anthropology and Theory and Society. His project at the Center concerns the question of language in the construction of borders, particularly the production of modern Hindi in connection with the nationalist project in India. His research is expected to take the form of a book that examines the linguistic and nationalist conflicts surrounding the 1947 partition of South Asia, and their continued relevance today.
