As part of the Andjelkovic Lecture series, Indrani Sigamany '80 will be discussing her own experience building a rights based career in her lecture entitled "Social Justice in a Globalized World" on Thursday, October 18.
A history major during her time at Whitman, Indrani Sigamany (MA, PhD) has devoted her 30-year career to social justice and international development, with a specialization in gender and indigenous people. Growing up in Mumbai, Dr. Sigamany witnessed the effects of extreme poverty from an early age and her passion for poverty alleviation has been a major thread binding her career.
Spending the last 30 years working with various human rights organizations in India and the global south, Dr. Sigamany's research since 2006 has specifically focused on mobile indigenous people on a global scale. More details about her career path and current research area can be found in this article.
This lecture was made possible thanks to the Sava and Danica Andjelkovic Endowed Lecture, which is part of a series of lectures coordinated by the Student Engagement Center to celebrate Whitman alumni and their career paths. It is free and open to the Walla Walla community.
