    Reader in Anthropology, SOAS

    Dr. Caroline Osella will be joining us to speak on 'The persistence of colonial stereotypes in contemporary South Asian Masculinities'. Dr. Osella has worked since 1989 in Kerala, south India and with Malayali migrants in the Gulf states. Her broadest research interest has been the ways in which projects of identity crafting are brought back to the body, while socially constructed bodies are differentiated to reflect class, ethnic and gender differences and to forge social hierarchies.

    Dr. Priyamvada Gopal will be speaking on 'Intellectuals as 'interpreters of insurgency'. Contemporary South Asian scholars will benefit greatly from Dr. Gopal's rich contribution to colonial and postcolonial literature and theory. We are looking forward to exciting interactions. We are hoping most of you would be able to attend and join us in this exchange.
