Dr Niharika Banerjea, Ambedkar University, Delhi
With Professor Stephen Whittle, Manchester Metropolitan University
20th June 2019 at 1.30pm
Room 3.12, Business School, Manchester Metropolitan University
Dr Banerjea will reflect upon her work with Sappho for Equality, a queer-feminist organization in Kolkata. She will discuss how academic-activist transnational collaborations are one way to imagine queer futures and how stories of such collaborations need to be critically heard and discussed in order to disrupt processes by which queer lives are assimilated into cultural logics of development, state and market.
