Keywords: urban political ecology; governmentality; everyday governance; India; water; sanitation; urban water bodies; urban parks

Anna’s research interests focus on urban political ecology, which she would like to take further in the exploration of ordinary cities and the everyday practices and politics found here. In her PhD research on water and sanitation, she has investigated questions of urban governance, governmentality, the everyday state and explored questions of equity and informal housing. Her current project studies environmental governance in small cities of Gujarat, with particular attention to parks, ponds, and solid waste management. More info.
