Lubna’s dissertation emerged from her interest in feminist philosophy to examine the conceptualisation and training of the body in classical dance, with a focus on Bharatanatyam and her experience of learning the dance form.
Previously, she worked with Economic & Political Weekly (EPW), Mumbai, as senior assistant editor. Apart from reviewing and editing submissions, writing editorials, she managed the publication of Postscript—the art/literature/culture section of EPW—and the Review of Women’s Studies. She worked on the development and implementation of the house style, the peer-review process, and the article management system, including providing training and technical assistance.
Her interests also include publication and medical ethics, stemming from her association with the Forum for Medical Ethics Society, Mumbai.
At the Word Lab in IIHS, Lubna will anchor the production of Urbanisation, and provide editorial assistance with academic and grey literature publications.
