Tori Gross is the Assistant Senior Instructional Professor of Anthropology and Assistant Director of MAPSS. She holds a PhD in Anthropology from Columbia University, an MA in Religious Studies, and a BA in Sociology and Religion both from McGill University. Tori's research interests include the politics of affect and emotion, performative hierarchy and masculinity, and parastate sovereignty in the context of India’s young democracy. She currently focuses on caste-based political movements that demonstrate the generative tensions between community and nation-state, and between yearning for the glories of the imagined past and living with the perpetual disappointments of unfulfilled desires borne by global capitalism.
