Anisha Gade was a student at American University when she researched Telugu Associations in Wisconsin. Her project explored the South Indian (specifically Telugu) socio-cultural-religious patterns of Hinduism in the Wisconsin/northern Illinois area. It examined Telugu associations represented by Telugu people in Wisconsin in an effort to understand the ways in which religion seeps into the nominally socio-cultural terrain of these organizations. The project documented the ways in which Hindu temples are connected to Telugu associations as well as the ways in which temples have become general community centers for the Indian-American community.
