Sreedevi’s area of research is senses and the theorisation of sense experiences in literary and cultural theory. In Indian academia, The discussion of tactility has been done primarily in Social Sciences and the experience of touch is explored in the sociological domain. The touchable and untouchable bodies are the main tropes in which the recent scholarship has explored the experience of tactility. During the fellowship period, Sreedevi will focus on the relationship between memory and sense experience in literary narratives and life writings from Keralam to examine how they engage with the social constructions.
