Professor Malini Ranganathan

Dr. Ranganathan is a critical geographer with a special interest in urban environmental injustices across the North-South divide. Apart from writing on the water tragedy in Flint, MI, and intersectional and decolonial struggles for freedom and the environment in the US, she also brings insights from postcolonial cities to bear on urban space, injustice, and the environment in the US, as she did for instance in “Water Marginalization at the Urban Fringe: Environmental Justice and Political Ecology Across the North-South Divide” in Urban Geography.
