The Centre for Studies in Gender and Sexuality at Ashoka University, and the Center for Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University are jointly organizing an exciting new webinar series called Theory and Practice (TAP). TAP will feature scholars and activists from around the world who can speak with one another about ideas of gender and sexuality from both East and West. As the ongoing pandemic unfurls new dimensions of gender and sexuality, it also reminds us of how old these aspects might be. The series will bring together a range of thinkers to address global questions of politics, rhetoric, and history.
Our inaugural session on November 11, 9 pm IST/ 10:30 am ET will be a panel discussion on “Engendering Caste, Sexualizing Race“, addressing the broad and complex intersections among caste, race, gender, and sex as these concepts continue to inform the cultures and politics of our time. For this session, we will have with us Professor Sameena Dalwai and Professor Sumit Baudh from Jindal Global University (India) and the activist and artist Thenmozhi Soundararajan (USA).
The session will be moderated by Professor Madhavi Menon, Director, CSGS Ashoka, and will be followed by a 15 minute Q&A with the audience.
