Sanjana Pampati is studying the role of caste in Eco-feminist movements. Prominent literature and eco-feminist movements that exist in India fail to acknowledge the issue of caste, alienating a large majority of the population. She intends to connect the exploitation of Adivasi (the indigenous people of India) and Dalit (the lower-castes of India) women with the exploitation of nature. She is working with Ernie Yanarella in the Political Science department.
