Gendered Caste, Sexualized Race
- Organizer: A/P/A Institute at NYU
- Address: New York, NY United States
Presented by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality and the Centre for Studies of Gender & Sexuality at Ashoka University, New Delhi. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU and South Asia at NYU.
This webinar marks the inaugural session of a new webinar series, “Theory and Practice: Transnational Conversations on Gender and Sexuality,” which is a collaboration between the NYU Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality and the Centre for Studies of Gender and Sexuality at Ashoka University (New Delhi). The series is aimed at TAP-ping into critical and creative energies from around the world, to expand the intellectual and geographical ambit of our conversations around gender and sexuality in relation to politics, rhetoric, and history. The first webinar will focus on, “Gendered Caste, Sexualizing Race.”
Race and caste have been described both as being similar and dissimilar. What the two structures share are long histories of violence that have also been gendered and sexualized. Simultaneously effeminized and hyper-masculinized, both caste and race have made evident the illogics of their governing structures. This session will address the broad and complex intersections among caste, race, gender, and sex as these concepts continue to inform the cultures and politics of our time.
Featuring Sameena Dalwai (Jindal Global University), Sumit Baudh (Jindal Global University), and Thenmozhi Soundararajan (Equality Labs).
