Sex Salon; Unlikely Bonds: Desis, Butches, and Ghosts

November 29th 2018 at 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM

The second Sex Salon of the year is upon us! This month’s speakers are scholars in International Studies, Public Policy, and Gender Studies. They will explore intersections of different identities in South Asia: the ethnicized whore, the racialized mother, the desi, and the butch.

As always, light refreshments will be served. We hope you can join us on November 29th, 4-5.30PM, in UC240.

Dr. Moon Charania and Sara Shroff, “Sex and Subalternity: Queer Methods and Practice of Listening to Ghosts”

Naveen Minai, “Desi Butch (Where the ‘Twain Shall Meet): Sexuality, Gender, Desire in South Asia”

Chair: Paolo FrascĂ
