Special Lecture Series (GSC) Talk


'Exploring genderscapes in higher education'


Dr Kalpana Kannabiran

Date and time: Thursday, November 3, 2016 at 5:00pm.
Venue: Himalaya 105

Through this session, I hope to trigger a sustained dialogue on gender lines, cross overs, intersectionality and social justice among young adults -- with the hope that the utopian visions of justice for all grows to form the commonsense of an entire generation. This conversation will be a mutually informative exercise, as it is also my deep desire to understand why young people think the way they do; how young men think; how young women think; and how social location interrupts perceptions of justice (if it does, that is) -- gender sits at the core of any idea of justice. And of course, gender is a continuum with the male and the female at the two ends. So we are not speaking or thinking of women alone.
