J Devika is a feminist researcher and teacher at Centre for Development Studies, Kerala, who has contributed to our understanding of the history of gender, development, politics, and culture of modern Kerala. Her work is interdisciplinary and she brings to bear her training as a historian on contemporary issues. She is interested in opening up the boundaries between academic and public and pedagogic discourses, the social sciences and humanities, and English and Malayalam. Her interdisciplinary research on Kerala has been published in global, national, and local journals. She is also a translator of literature and social science writing between Malayalam and English, and conceives of translation as an act intrinsic to being a feminist in the post-colony that is India.
