Governing Intimacies

In September 2019, the CSGS organised a research meeting in Delhi for scholars pursuing different projects under Governing Intimacies, a five-year long research project funded by the Andrew Mellon Foundation. The project encourages new and interdisciplinary scholarship on gender, sexuality and intimacy in postcolonial societies, and the CSGS is housing the project in partnership with the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa. Over the two days of the research meeting, 18 grantees presented their research, alongside academics from Delhi-NCR. To tie the panels together with the overarching theme, we had eminent scholars such as Paromita Vohra deliver public lectures on regulation of sexuality and on radical ways of loving.
