Presented by the Centre for Studies of Gender and Sexuality at Ashoka University and the NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.

‘Trans*’ as a prefix suggests movement and boundary-crossing. Most productively, it has also come to denote the mobility and transitions across genders and sexualities. How can we think about trans-ness trans-nationally and trans-culturally? This panel will focus on multiple ways of thinking about cross-border embodiments and movements through gender and sexuality by putting US and South Asian (and Americanist and postcolonial) understandings of trans* lives and bodies in conversation with one another. Featuring Sayan Bhattacharya (University of Minnesota), Anindya Hajra (activist), and C. Riley Snorton (University of Chicago). Moderated by Gayatri Gopinath (NYU Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality).


Part of the Theory and Practice: Transnational Conversations on Gender and Sexuality webinar series — a collaboration between the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University and the Centre for Studies of Gender and Sexuality at Ashoka University (New Delhi) — 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.
