Indian lesbian autobiographical writing: A feminist and post-colonial perspective
Arunima’s work looks at published lesbian Indian life writing (autobiographies, letters, memoirs, interviews, anthologies) written by resident as well as diasporic Indians in the last 20 years. Her endeavour is to analyse how an Indian lesbian chooses to narrate her life vis-a-vis her political, legal, social and economic status. She will share her findings in this talk and share how Indian lesbians fit into this evolving modern transnational queer landscape.
Arunima Theraja is a second-year PhD student at the Centre for Women’s Studies (CWS), University of York. Her PhD combines her two interests- feminist literature and Queer rights. She also enjoys volunteering and teaching.
This event is a collaboration with Cambridge Central Library.
