McKean is the author of Divine Enterprise: Gurus and the Hindu Nationalist Movement (University of Chicago Press, 1996). She was a research associate in the Dept. of Anthropology at the University of Chicago and former managing editor of Public Culture. McKean was recently called upon to testify before the Senate regarding the surge in Hindu nationalism. This will serve as the backdrop for her reflections on Kanwar's films.
