Short bio

Lindsay Vogt is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies, University of Zurich. She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2019. Her doctoral project, “New Water in New India: How Does Philanthropy Re-Cast Water and Citizenship?,” was based on 15 months of ethnographic fieldwork at various sites of techno-informational development in India which are funded by sources associated with the Indian high-tech sector. She is currently preparing a manuscript on the basis of that work. Lindsay has taught at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Emory University in the departments of Anthropology, Environmental Studies, Asian and Asian American Studies, and Comparative Literature.
