Sanjukta Mukherjee, Assistant Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at DePaul University, reviews Impossible Citizens: Dubai’s Indian Diaspora. The book is an ethnography of the Indian community in Dubai, focusing on daily experiences and performances of inclusion and exclusion. The book examines the lives of non-citizens who are nonetheless entrenched in Dubai’s socioeconomic fabric and challenge homogenous Arab and Muslim understandings of Gulf societies with their hybridity.
