This conference will examine the relationship between the notions of boundaries and sexuality from an interdisciplinary, transnational and transcultural perspective. In particular, it aims to map the ways in which space determines sexualities and sexual practices, and to understand, in turn, how sex structures and limits the spaces in which we live, and how we relate to them.

Concept Note & CFP: "Articulating Urbanity: Writing the South Asian City"

updated: 
Monday, July 13, 2020 - 10:16am
Anubhav Pradhan
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 15, 2020

While South Asian writing has primarily been concerned with national identities and macroscopic questions of modernity and tradition, urban-scale articulations of hybrid, multi-faceted senses of selfhood have become more common over the past few decades. The urban is that unpredictable, partially knowable realm of experience which inflects our everyday with multiple lexicons of meaning. Such multi-sited meaning is a hallmark of all kinds of urbanity, but in our present context in South Asia it has acquired an epochal significance given the pace at which our cities and towns are developing and perhaps even destroying themselves.
