Roundtable Discussion the Keyword "Gender" - UH Manoa International Cultural Studies Program Faculty Speaker Series

We had a great discussion on the keyword "gender" on November 11th with Mel Chen and Julia Bryan Wilson, both at UC Berkeley.  If you are not familiar with Mel's excellent book Animacies: Biopolitics, Racial Mattering, and Queer Affect, I highly recommend it!  The roundtable was part of the International Cultural Studies Graduate Certificate Program Faculty Speaker Series at UH Manoa, and was co-sponsored by the Sociology Department, the Department of Women's Studies, and the Department of Art and Art History.  Many thanks to Nandita Sharma for the invitation, and for organizing and moderating. One of our graduate students in Political Science, Benton Rodden, snapped this picture of me discussing the creation of the 'Middle East' as a digital space.
