ITINERANT SEX: GOA'S OTHER WORLDS – MUNDO GOA

Special Project Curator: Vivek Menezes

Anjali Arondekar is primarily interested in three concepts that have increasingly become the focii of methodological debates within historical and/or literary studies: archives (what constitutes historical evidence), exemplarity (how do we read evidence) and geopolitics (where do we read from). Such methodological concerns bring genealogies of area studies to bear on Anglo-American histories of literature and culture, and ask how such an attention to “area” calibrates questions of race, gender and sexuality. Broadly speaking, she reads and writes within established disciplines (history, literature, law) and field formations (area studies, queer/sexuality studies), mobilizing South Asia through its multilingual and divergent colonial and national formations.
