On Gender and Sexuality: Discourses, Dialogues and Praxis in Contemporary South Asia
In South Asia, the systematic analysis of issues pertaining to gender first emerged in the 1970s and 1980s, and even later with regard to sexuality.
Research and practice engaging with questions of gender and sexuality have undergone critical changes in the past few years.
From paradigms that were solely organized around binaries, dualisms and difference, there is now a discernible shift towards analysis and interpretation with regard to the diversity of gendered and sexual identities and practices, seeking to account for fragmented experiences, diverse representations and multiple perceptions of gender and sexuality within the South Asian region.
Papers are invited from candidates in MA and MPhil/PhD programs in the social sciences and humanities at recognized universities and research organizations in South Asia.
