Namita Manohar is a qualitative feminist sociologist with a broad interest in sociology of families, international migration and the intersections of gender, race and ethnicity. Her empirical research is centered on Indians in the United States. Previous projects have included a gendered ethnic perspective on partnering among Indian-Americans, and an ethnographic and interview based study of immigrant Indian professional women's gendered subjectivities around work and mothering in the United States. Manohar teaches sociology of gender, and sociology of work at the undergraduate level. She approaches her teaching from an intersectional perspective, designing her courses to encourage students' active engagement with the course materials, with a goal of enhancing their critical thinking, and oral and written skills.
