Vinod Kumar

Ph.D. in English, Batch of 2019, Ashoka University

Research Area: Sexuality and Religion

Vinod Kumar is interested in what society often regards as perversion, and deviant sexual behaviour. His research focuses on the relationship between Hinduism and its disavowal of deviant forms of sexual behaviour since the advent of Hindu revivalism. In ploughing through literary and historical sources, his work investigates whether queerness is in conflict with the idea of the Hindu nation. In his research, Vinod hopes to take Foucault and Freud’s scholarship forward.
