Leila Zaki Chakravarti

Leila Zaki Chakravarti is a Visiting Research Fellow in Anthropology at Goldsmiths, London University. Her recently published monograph exploring constructs of class, gender and religion within an export-orientated garment manufacturing factory in Port Said, Egypt was one of the three 2017 finalists in the BBC’s annual “Thinking Allowed” Ethnography Award competition. Her current research interests focus on constructs of masculinity within the workspaces of professional and amateur football, and the continuing compilation of ‘ethnographic snapshots’ of daily life in post-Arab Spring Egypt.
