About Me

Anita is an experienced tutor who can offer guidance across social science disciplines. She is a specialist in Social Anthropology, and is currently writing up her thesis based on extended ethnographic fieldwork with LGBT/Queer activists in Kolkata, India. Her work explores the strategies and knowledge practices activists use in their work to bring about social change, and considers embodied, somatic, personal and academic knowledge forms as subjects of anthropological enquiry.

She is also a professional conductor and organist, Assistant Director at Beverley Minster in East Yorkshire and former Organ Scholar at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. Her academic perspectives on music from a sociological perspective have been recognised by the Royal Anthropological Institute and performing bodies such as the London Philharmonic Orchestra. She has completed her PGCE in secondary Music education, and in her performing career is recognised as a specialist in European early music.
