The Centre for Studies in Gender and Sexuality hosts a variety of events throughout the academic year. These include a speakers’ series, student seminars, film screenings, workshops, and poetry readings. Most events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise notified. We partner with faculty, students, and staff members across departments at Ashoka in organizing these events. This is in keeping with the inter-disciplinary spirit that the Liberal Arts education offers. All our events promote critical thinking and a study of gender, sexuality, identity, and desire from a variety of perspectives and creative approaches. While we emphasize the study of these issues in the Indian context, we also encourage students to learn about ideas from around the world. The events calendar is prepared in a way that the conversations generated by our events are sustained throughout the year.

Check the CSGS Calendar to know more about upcoming events. We hope to see you at many of them! For information on getting to the campus, please check the Ashoka University website ( The University runs a shuttle service between the Jahangirpuri Metro Station and campus.
