An article by Upper School history and social studies teacher Meghan Chidsey was published by the International Journal of the Sociology of Language.
In her article, “The language medium ‘divide’: Ideologies of Hindi-English use at four all-girls’ ‘public schools’ in North India," Meghan looks at the history of language use at all-girls private schools in North India. The article is based on a chapter of her doctoral dissertation in anthropology at Columbia University, using research conducted during a year of ethnographic fieldwork at four, elite boarding schools in northern India under a Fulbright scholarship.
In Calhoun’s Upper School, Megan teaches world history as well as electives such as Introduction to Anthropology, Global Mythology & Folklore. She is also Calhoun’s Girls’ Varsity Soccer Coach. Watch a video of a project in Meghan’s anthropology class.
