Researching refugeehood and gender in the field: a mixed-methods study

Paul, Sudeshna, author

During 2009-2011, Sudeshna Paul was engaged in an in-depth study of refugee life - everyday experiences of people as refugees, their struggle for relocation, and the dynamics of social relationships as reflected through oral narratives describing the course of refugeehood, from dislocation to relocation. Despite social science inquiries, there exists a gap between the official social-historical-political accounts of the partition of the Indian subcontinent and the victims of partition. The research intended to bring forward into consideration the historical struggle of the East Pakistani Hindu Bengali refugees to establish their right to home in an alien land with a focus on the role of their women. This case study provides an account of a 2-year-long research project, underscoring specific situational and methodological problems that arose during the research
