Reading Group: Srila Roy’s ‘Changing the Subject’

The South Asia Forum and the Sexual Cultures Research Group are pleased to welcome Srila Roy for a discussion of her new book, Changing the Subject (Duke University Press, 2023). The book maps the rapidly transforming terrain of gender and sexual politics in India under the conditions of global neoliberalism.

Srila Roy is Professor of Sociology at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. She is the author of Remembering Revolution: Gender, Violence and Subjectivity in India’s Naxalbari Movement (OUP, 2012) and editor of New South Asian Feminisms: Paradoxes and Possibilities (Zed Books, 2012).

Participants are encouraged to read ‘Preface’ and ‘Chapter 1’ ahead of the discussion. For a PDF, please RSVP to c.moffat [at] qmul.ac.uk
