FGSS 179 SC - South Asian Feminisms


This class will explore feminist, queer and gender-justice movements in contemporary South Asian contexts paying special attention to intersectional questions of caste, class, religion, nationalisms, state violence and militarism. It will examine various regional and national social movements organized from Muslim, Dalit, Adivasi, queer, transgender feminist perspectives. Working class and rural experiences will also be emphasized. Tensions and faultiness between various kinds of feminisms in specific “women’s movements” will be analyzed. Particular attention will be paid to critiques and revisionings offered through the perspectives of historically marginalized communities.
