RWCLS Lecture by Dr. Gayatri Gopinath, NYU
Time: 12:00 PM–01:15 PM
Location: @ Burns Hall 2118
Diaspora, Indigeneity, Queer Critique: The Intimate Geographies of Dwelling & Displacement
Gayatri Gopinath is an Associate Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and Director of Asian/Pacific/American Studies at New York University. Her research area includes Queer Studies, Post-colonial Studies, and Feminist Theory. Her talk is an attempt to think through the relation between diaspora and indigeneity in relation to queer studies. She argues that queer diasporic aesthetic practices allow us to place in the same frame, different histories of dispossession and displacement, colonialism and racialization without rendering them equivalent.
Dr. Gopinath will also meet with graduate students to discuss research methods from 1:30-2:30PM on Wed., April 8th in Burns Hall-2118.
Part of the Department of Sociology 2015 Spring Colloquium Series, & co-sponsored by the International Cultural Studies Program and the Rama Watumull Collaborative Lecture Series of the Center for South Asian Studies at University of Hawai‘i, Mānoa
