नेपाली लोक दोहरिमा बिद्या बारीधी (पिएचडी) गरेकी अमेरिकन नगरिक आना स्टिरसंगको अन्तर्वाता फेरी एक पटक
Anna Stirr is Assistant Professor of Asian Studies at the University of Hawaii-Manoa. Anna’s research focuses on South Asia, particularly on Nepal and the Himalayan region. She is currently working on two projects that deal with love, intimacy, and politics in Nepal. The first looks at improvised Dohori question-answer songs as culturally intimate, gendered expressions of ideas of nation, belonging, and heritage, within a cycle of migration and media circulation that spans the globe. The second chronicles the history of Nepal’s politically oppositional “progressive song” from the 1960s to the present, with a focus on ideas of love, development, and communist thought as interrelated ways of imagining a better future. Articles from these projects have appeared in various journals and edited volumes. Anna also maintains active research interests in the relationship between music, religion, politics and public culture in South Asia and the Himalayas.
