Biography

Since 2006, Andrew Sanchez has conducted ethnographic fieldwork in urban India among industrial workers, trade unionists and entrepreneurs.

Andrew´s first monograph ‘Criminal Capital: Violence, Corruption and Class in Industrial India’ was published by Routledge in 2015. Based upon field research among a ‘casualised’ workforce in the industrial city of Jamshedpur, the book examines the links between the decline of employment security, and criminality in trade unions, corporations and the state.

Andrew earned his doctorate in anthropology from the LSE in 2009. Prior to joining the University of Kent as Lecturer in Social Anthropology in 2014, he lectured at the LSE, and was Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology.

Andrew is currently writing an ethnographic study of the Indian scrap metal industry. His new work addresses key conceptual debates in the anthropology of value, exchange and class.
