Durga Kale is a PhD Candidate at the University of Calgary and her doctoral thesis looks at the Sacred Landscape along the west coast of India (Konkan, in particular). Her work intersects ethnographic, anthropological and literary studies. With her background in archaeology, her work and curatorial experience in material culture contributes to her research.

“Kalemighty” is a place for her blogs and other activities in academic research. The site is created with a view to build on her intent to bring academic equity and to help find byways to reduce academic gate-keeping. Durga’s blogs are based on various themes along with hyperlinks to the material from museums across the world and additional reading suggestions.
