Empires, Economy and the Transits of Sex

March 14, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Manoa Campus, BusAd C101 Add to Calendar

Empires, Economy and the Transits of Sex: Why Intimacy matters to South Asian Migration History. Co-sponsored by the Center for South Asian Studies. Dr. Nayan Shah is Professor of American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California. His research examines the contests over state power and citizenship in public health, law, and social welfare from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century in the United States and Canada. His work has contributed new methods and interpretations of how racialization is constituted and perpetuated in political, cultural and state arenas by divergent conceptualizations of gender, sexuality and domesticity, which have justified the disparate allocation of resources and protections. His latest book is ‘Stranger Intimacy: Contesting Race, Sexuality and the Law in the North American West’ (UC Press 2011).
