Dr Nadya Pohran

Non-Stipendary Visiting Fellow


Dr. Nadya Pohran is a cultural anthropologist whose research interests fall broadly in religion and spirituality. Her PhD at the University of Cambridge was an ethnographic exploration of a Christian Ashram in the north of India, through which she explored themes of interreligious relations, Hindu-Christian relations, existential belonging, and the challenges of getting along with people who have differing religious views. She has published articles and book chapters related to multiple religious belonging, the anthropology of Christianity, Indian Christianity, and the emerging interdisciplinary conversations between theology and anthropology. She is currently co-editing a volume with Routledge Press (expected late 2021) entitled Hindu-Christian Dual Belonging and is writing a monograph with Bloomsbury Press (expected 2022) tentatively entitled Christian Inculturation in India. Apart from her ethnographic explorations of Indian Christianity, she is interested in spiritual and alternative therapies (e.g. mindfulness meditation and psychedelic therapies) and mental wellbeing.
