Foregrounding Courtesan as Political Subject in Feminist Historiography
Date: 28-10-2022
Speaker: Dr. Lata Singh, Centre for Women’s Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University
Webinar Abstract: The voices of marginal women have remained invisibilised for long in history. Recently some attempts have been made to bring them to the forefront. Nevertheless, significant sections of women’s history of those who do not lead ‘conventional’ sexual lives and are not so called ‘respectable’ mothers or wives, the quintessential inspirational figures in the nationalist discourse, still remains in dark. One such category are the courtesans, women belonging to the traditional singing and dancing community. Nationalist discourses have negated or erased women’s creative aspect by putting them out of the framework of the ‘respectable’ nation. Some recent scholarship works foregrounds courtesans as creative subjects though they are seldom regarded as political subjects in their own right. There is historical evidence of courtesans playing significant political roles.In this presentation an attempt will be made to rupture the dominant ‘respectable’ middle class nationalist discourse and critically engage with courtesan’s troubled relationship with the nation in the making.

Reflections on Indian Independence and Nation Building through the Lives of her First Generation of Parliamentary/Political Women
Date: 29-09-2022
Speaker: Dr. Annie Devenish, Lecturer, History Department, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa
Webinar Abstract: ‘Does man make the age, or the age make the man?’ asks well-known Indian nationalist, socialist and feminist Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay at the start of her autobiography. Of her own life and that of her generation, Chattopadhyay could just as easily be asking ‘Does the woman make the age, or the age make the woman?’, to which her autobiography was to answer that they make each other. Chattopadhyay’s life story like that of her contemporaries – as part of a generation political and social justice activists whose careers straddle the coming of independence in India – was deeply entangled within with the anti-colonial movement and the nation building project. In my book Debating Women’s Citizenship in India 1930–1960, I documented and explored the meaning of independence for this generation and how they conceptualised the relationship between citizenship, equality and gender justice and the various spheres in which the meaning and application of this citizenship was broadened and narrowed, renegotiated, and pursued. In this paper I return to the rich life stories of this generation, to explore the way in which Indian independence and nation building can be reflected and refracted through the lives of this first generation of Parliamentary/political women. Drawing on these autobiographical and biographical accounts, I equally reflect on the value of life histories as a means for a gendered narration and interrogation of nationalist history.

Untold Stories of Trafficked Survivors and Sex Workers in Manipur
Speaker: Prof. Ajailiu Niumai is C.V. Raman Fellow and Head, Centre for the Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy, University of Hyderabad, Telangana
Date: 25 August, 2022
Webinar Abstract: Manipur has emerged as an origin and transit point for human trafficking. This presentation is based on an ongoing intersectional study of the linkage between commercial sex work and human trafficking in Manipur. Drawing on the narratives of survivors, government officials, and social workers, the study demonstrates that the processes of neo-liberalism and globalization contribute to human trafficking. The presentation employs hitherto silenced and/or absent narratives of trafficked survivors to highlight the intersectionalities underpinning women sex-workers experiences in Manipur. The study employs a mixed method approach with a special focus on purposive sampling, individual interviews and case studies. The limits of the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act, 1956 are underlined and the need for a critical review of the Act is emphasised.

Sports for Persons with Disabilities in India: The Story So Far and the Way Forward
Speaker: Dr.SriPadmini Chennapragada, Founder Director, Adapted Sports India Foundation (ASIF)
Date: 29 July, 2022
Webinar Abstract: Since the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Indian print and electronic media have increased their coverage of sports for persons with disabilities. This growth can be attributed to many factors and one of the most important of them is the passage of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (RPwD) Act, 2016. Within the Act, Section 30 focuses on sports, culture and recreation. Despite an increase in funding from the Central government, very little support exists for citizens at the grassroots to pursue sports. Within higher social sciences and academic disciplines that study the intersectionality of disability rights with other aspects of life, there is scarce understanding of how much sports can impact one’s everyday life. The aim of this presentation is to provide a comprehensive overview of what opportunities exist for disability sport in India and abroad. The pathways that exist, barriers and challenges that prevent equitable access for all citizens and potential areas of intersectional work that social scientists can pursue.

Situating Assamese Women and their roles in India’s Freedom Struggle
Speaker: Dr. Simashree Bora, Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology, Cotton University, Guwahati
Date: 30 June, 2022
Webinar Abstract:
For long history has obfuscated the role of women in India’s freedom struggle. Specially, women’s role in the struggle from North east India is not given its due in the nationalist narrative. Women from this region, their roles, participation and contributions have often gone unnoticed and seldom form collective memory of India’s freedom movement. This talk will try to problematize these aspects while attempting a closer look at the seminal roles played by women and their mobilization during freedom struggle in Assam. The talk is divided into two sections; first, a discussion on women freedom fighters and martyr, and women’s political activities during the freedom struggle. Secondly, it will discuss the absence of historical narratives of Assamese women from the mainstream feminist writings and literature.

Yoga Demonstration by: Dr. Jayant Nagar (PG Scholar III), Dept. of Swasthavritta and Yoga, Faculty of Ayurveda, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi
Date: 21 June, 2022
Webinar Abstract: Empowering women, particularly in the context of health, not only contributes to improving the quality of their lives but also enhances their capacities to participate fully across all sectors of nation building. Yoga is a science for the integrated, holistic development of the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of human life. The importance of yoga is now recognized internationally but its role in enhancing women’s well-being is still not well recognized. Yoga can help women to not only achieve a better health status but also to lead overall successful and fulfilling lives.

Probing the Field of Dalit Feminism
Speaker: Dr. Smita Patil, Associate Professor, School of Gender and Development Studies, Indira Gandhi National Open University
Date: 22 April 2022
Webinar Abstract: Dalit studies is undergoing major ideological shifts. Critiques to changing forms of caste and gender relations are central to those changes. Dalit feminism is caught between certain inertia and appeasement from the progressive academics. At the same time, progressive academics still are confused whether dalit feminism should be categorized as part of identity politics or radical political intellectual discourse/praxis in the Indian context. Emergence of dalit intellectuals/feminists in the dominant-academic space is often celebrated as revolutionary in nature. It is compared to the earlier dalit-women activist phase that was excluded from the questions of knowledge production. Dalit feminism is being discussed as a field of critical enquiry that is side-lined in the hegemonic academics. Dalit feminism is questioning the geopolitics of brahmanic academic ideas. Such critical inquiry will lead to the larger questions of democratization of knowledge. Return to the past as well as engaging with the contemporary questions are much welcomed within the field of dalit feminism. It is not analysed within the transforming nature of political institutions and politics of knowledge. Questions of social and cultural capital are central to dalit writings. Neoliberal phase of the capitalism also affects the larger academic articulations in general and dalit feminist interventions in particular. At the same time,dalit studies is facing Marxist critique from within and post-modern/Marxist appropriation within and outside the dalit academic discourse .Dalit academic space is also read as   ghettoised dalit group in the majoritarian  academic imagination. At the same time, invisibility of dalits in reputed educational institutions has added paradoxical turn in the debates on dalit studies. This lecture attempts to rethink about the existing nature of dalit feminism through the aforementioned, broad issues.

Social Protection at the Crossroads: Towards a better future?
Speaker: Prof. Shahra Razavi, Director, Social Protection Department, ILO
Date: 20 December 2021
Webinar Abstract: Unlike the global financial crisis of 2008, which originated in the under-regulated capitalist financial system and then spilled over into the real economy, the COVID-19 crisis, demonstrates that a crisis that has its origins in the non-market spheres of our economies, is also capable of producing a full-blown livelihood and macroeconomic disaster on a global scale. The presentation will begin with a brief description of the social protection gaps and inequalities that COVID-19 revealed and accentuated, especially from a gender perspective. It will then highlight some of the critical features of the global social protection response to the crisis, both positive and negative. The final part of the presentation asks if we are likely to see a shift to more inclusive economic and social policies? Arguably, the present crisis has assumed such vast dimensions that it has reconfigured policy mindsets and prised open a unique window of opportunity. There are indeed some glimmers of hope in what could constitute the building blocks for a ‘high road’ strategy out of the crisis. As encouraging as these may be, serious hurdles stand in the way of an inclusive global recovery, not least, the risk on the horizon (if not already here) of a harsh fiscal reaction, especially in the developing world. The crisis has provided fertile terrain for thinking about socially progressive alternatives, but trajectories of change will likely defy sweeping generalizations about the direction of ‘progressive’ or ‘regressive’ change, with spaces for progressive change opening up in one area, only to close in another.

The Institutional Life of Intersectionality
Speaker: Jennifer C. Nash
Date: 29-04-2021
Webinar Abstract: This talk aspires to historicize the present moment, one where intersectionality is celebrated as “part of the gender studies canon,” (Baca Zinn 2012) “the most cutting-edge approach to the politics of gender, race, sexual orientation, and class” (Hancock 2011), and “the most important contribution that women’s studies … has made so far” (McCall 2005). In other words, the talk endeavors to understand a moment when intersectionality, a form of outsider-knowledge, has become institutionalized, conflated with diversity, and deployed by universities (and women’s studies departments and programs) to signal commitments to inclusion and difference. How and why did intersectionality come to institutional power in the early 2000’s, and what institutional needs – in women’s studies, and in the university more broadly – did intersectionality’s emergence serve?

Women and Waste: the question of shit-work
Speaker: Barbara Harriss-White
Date: 15 April 2021
Webinar Abstract: In 1989 the sociologist Patricia Jeffery, writing about women and dung in rural UP, defined shit-work as low status, menial work without control over resources. Fast forward to urban TN where dung is but a small subset of a commodified and differentiated public-private waste economy that is structurally informalised. Using case material from fieldwork carried out between 2015-19, we follow gendered work in waste produced in the urban circuits of capital – in production, distribution, consumption, labour (human waste), and social reproduction. We look at materials, tasks, gendered labour relations, incomes and political-social invisibility.  This generates resources for reflections about gender, caste, class and small-town shit-work, with questions about public policy.

Bodies that Matter: Towards a Feminist Approach to Data Governance
Speaker: Anja Kovacs 
Date: 24 February, 2021
Webinar Abstract: Dominant discourses tend to construct data as a resource of some sort, as a thing that is somehow out there and therefore up for grabs. However, in practice the line between physical bodies and virtual bodies is increasingly becoming irrelevant. Data, then, is not so much a resource that is simply out there, but an extension of our bodies, even a part of it. And so the question arises: from data colonialism to seeking consent, how does bringing our, now reconstituted, bodies back into the picture reframe our approach to data governance?

Disability Matters? Nationalist Imaginaries, Economic Crises, and the Impact of a Pandemic
Speaker: Janet Price
Date: 12 January 2021
Webinar Abstract: In this paper, I want to draw upon feminist and disability theories of embodiment, affect and nationalism to offer a preliminary reading of the COVID19 pandemic. Within India and UK recent albeit contrasting experiences of populism have seen individual and national appeals to the ideal of home reinvigorating the turn to securing domestic boundaries, often against misread threats. As the COVID pandemic weaves through populations, cultural imaginaries call upon able and crip nationalisms as a route to conquering ever-rising danger levels – biological, economic, and environmental. With the future marked by anxiety amid moves to control populations, the multiplier effect of COVID19 upon pre-existing inequalities draws concepts of debility, disability and slow death into new configurations. Policies for ‘prevention’ impact with often eugenic effect upon the most vulnerable groups. Resistance and hope have emerged in the face of fear as disability organisations have used the power of art to educate, expose and act-back against the death and violence their community experience.

Can there be a progressive feminist Bharathanatyam?: Class, Caste, and Representation

Speaker: Nrithya Pillai
Date: 26 November 2020
Webinar Abstract: Bharathanatyam is mired in a problematic past. Beginning in the 1930s, it was reinvented as a nationalist project at the hands of upper-caste elites, and the contours of that reinvention still have implications and resonances today. The key pillars of the “new” Bharathanatyam included the engineered exclusion of hereditary women practitioners, as well as reimagined, highly Sanskritized, and deeply gendered aesthetics and technique. Moreover, these were couched in the idea of dance as a “spiritual pursuit” for upper-caste (or aspirationally upper-caste) amateur practitioners, unlike the professional practice it was for its original performers. Reimagined Bharathanatyam continues to embody all of these problems. Can there be a progressive feminist Bharathanatyam that can be practiced across the barriers of caste, class, and gender?

Performing Modernity: Women and Music in the Twentieth Century

Speaker: Tejaswini Niranjana (Centre for Cultural Studies, Lingnan University, Hong Kong)
Date: 11 September 2020
Webinar Abstract: The idea of women performers in the twentieth-century public domain in India, whether they were singing or dancing or acting, gave rise to new discursive formations involving the law, morality, and aesthetics. The censorious gaze of colonial authorities denouncing the ‘nautch’, for example, becomes distilled into nationalist austerities. As more and more women perform in public, the conditions under which they can be seen and heard, and are allowed to live, come to be constrained in new ways. It is a complicated and multi-sited story, and I try to draw out some of its nuances by looking at the careers of a few women vocalists, such as Anjanibai Malpekar, Gangubai Hangal, and Gangabai Thakur who either lived in Mumbai or came there to perform.

Feminist Everyday Political Economy: Space, Time and Violence
Speaker: Prof. Shirin M. Rai (Department of Politics and International Studies, Director, Warwick Interdisciplinary Research Centre for International Development)
Date: 13 August 2020
Webinar Abstract: As the experience of lockdowns under covid-19 has revealed, women are carrying the majority of the burden of everyday work. This paper seeks to interrogate the concept of the every day – questioning prevalent understandings of every day and asking whether there is an analytical and conceptual utility to be gained in articulating a specifically feminist understanding of it. I argue that a feminist political economy of every day can be developed in ways that push theorisations of social reproduction in new directions. I suggest that one way to do this is through the recognition that social reproduction is the every day alongside a three-part theorisation of space, time, and violence (STV). It is an approach that we feel can play an important role in keeping IPE honest – that is, one that recognises how important gendered structures of everyday power and agency are to the conduct of everyday life within global capitalism.
