"The Moral Authority of the Matha and the Possibility of Justice," Part 3 of the GENDER, NATION, AND LITERATURE IN SOUTH ASIA: A COLLOQUIUM SERIES
Please join us for our spring colloquium series at Rutgers University.
This series explores how gender and nation have been understood and constructed through literature in South Asia. It does so by bringing experts from English and Comparative Literature, Cultural Studies, and History to Rutgers to engage three key themes: the dynamics of Dalit literature and identity in India, selfhood and identity in post-Independence women's writing, and the role of religious institutions in offering avenues for gender justice and caste equality. How have changing gender roles and ideals changed the idea of the nation and who belongs to it? What role has literature played in precipitating these changes, and how have new tensions over the nation precipitated similar shifts in literary form and style?
Sponsored by the Department of African, Middle Eastern, and South Asian Languages and Literatures, Rutgers South Asian Studies Program, Dean of Humanities, The Office of Undergraduate Education, the Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs, and Rutgers Libraries.
