Description
About the Book

Indian call centre employees work through the night, sleep during the day, and listen to foreign voices in accented tongues over transnational telephone connections. Through a description of the nightly and daily lives of call centre workers in the university town of Pune, India, 1-800-Worlds engages with the complex negotiations that underlie the ostensible success of new service economies. As the author shows, the call centre industry is neither insular nor singular but offers a set of symptoms that can help read changing forms of urban Indian middle-classness.

About The Author

She is currently pursuing a project on bodily imaginations in relation to new genetic diagnostic technologies. Her areas of interest include the anthropology of work and gender, medical anthropology, urban studies, globalization, and affective labour.
