About the Speaker:
Krishna Adhikari is a research fellow at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology, University of Oxford. He is the Chair of the Britain-Nepal Academic Council, and a founder of the Centre for Nepal Studies UK. Adhikari is engaged in research covering a range of subjects, including: international development; Nepali Diaspora; and caste, class and culture. He has (co-)led a number of research projects at Oxford, and he is currently a co-investigator of a British Academy-funded research project on ‘The Dalit Search for Dignity’. After 12 years as a practitioner and manager in the field of rural development in Nepal, he did a PhD at the University of Reading (2007) on the dynamics of social capital and community institutions. His publications include Nepalis in the United Kingdom: An Overview (ed., CNSUK 2012) and British Gurkha Pensions Policies and Ex-Gurkha Campaigns (co-authored, CNSUK, 2014; 2019 Trans.).
Britain Nepal Academic Council (BNAC) and Martin Chautari have started a collaborative initiative to organise a new lecture series themed as the Martin Chautari – BNAC Lecture Series.
The idea is to promote knowledge exchange between the two organisations, by offering BNAC members and other UK-based academics and researchers a platform for sharing their research in Kathmandu. Martin Chautari will host the lecture in Kathmandu on a mutually agreed date and time.
The lecture will be organised on an occasional basis, as and when a speaker is available. Nepal-based speakers also could give a lecture under this series.
