Haley Duschinski's interests include violence, war, and militarization; human rights; theories of exclusion; transitional justice; and rule of law in cross-cultural contexts, with special attention to South Asia.  She is particularly interested in the circulation and localization of concepts of rights and rule of law and the legal production of political consequences in conflict and post-conflict societies.  Her current ethnographic project examines contested meanings and formations of human rights that are emerging at the local level in Kashmir Valley in the context of the ongoing peace process in India and Pakistan.  Her scholarship has appeared in Anthropological Quarterly, Political and Legal Anthropology Review, Cultural Studies, International Journal of Hindu Studies, and the Indian human rights magazine Combat Law.  Her courses include Anthropology of Violence and Peace, Anthropology of Human Rights, Anthropology for Social Change, Cultures of South Asia, and Applied Anthropology, and she is Director of the Anthropology Internship Program at OU.  Dr. Duschinski received her Ph.D. in Social Anthropology from Harvard University and her B.A. in Anthropology from the University of North Carolina. She is 2007 recipient of the University Professor Award, and 2009 recipient of the Graselli Brown Teaching Award.
