Sanam Roohi carries out an anthropological study of a group of highly educated professional migrants in the US who are deeply engaged in philanthropic projects for social development in their home region in southern India. The aim is to offer insight into the shaping of a transnational community that remains culturally and materially rooted in its home region and in regional social formations of caste, class and kinship.
