Tanu has a background in Philosophy (M.A) and Childhood Studies (M.Phil). She has engaged closely with diverse childhoods in India (Ladakh, Goa, Pune District), Italy (Trentino-Alto Adige), Germany (Tübingen City) and Norway (Trondheim City). Her present research focus is on suggesting a childist perspective for the pedagogy of philosophy in response to the overheated era of Anthropocene Neoliberalism. Since 2014, Tanu facilitates bilingual seminars (EN/DE) as part of the interdisciplinary programme - B.A. Kultur und Gesellschaft (Erziehungswissenschaft) at University of Bayreuth, and contributed to teaching as part of the interdisciplinary programme - M.Phil Childhood Studies at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
