South Asia by the Bay 2014 Graduate Student Conference: Feminist Interventions: On Gender and South Asia

This conference seeks to explore the interrelated, epistemological frameworks of gender studies and area studies in the multiple articulations of what constitutes the subjects and studies of the terrain of “South-Asia.” We are particularly interested in work that builds on feminist theory to extend histories of regions via a discussion of translation, diaspora, migration, militarism and nationalism, to name a select few. 
Papers that highlight gender and sexuality as constitutive to regional formations are especially welcome. While the conference will be open to the public, it is primarily designed to create a much-needed space for connecting conversations between graduate students working on issues of gender within South Asia.
