UPCOMING EVENT

WEDNESDAY, 9/9
3:30 IN CCB 252

PROFESSOR BASULI DEB, 
UNIVERSITY OF NEBRAKSA-LINCOLN

“Transnational Feminist Perspectives on 
Terror in Literature and Culture”


Deb will discuss feminist and queer responses to domestic and foreign policy vis-à-vis terrorism and the politics of counter-terror torture by/of women. Using the War on Terror in Afghanistan and Iraq, her work revisits other racialized wars in Palestine/Israel, Guatemala, India, Algeria, and South Africa to examine public service and public policy implications of women’s leadership in these conflict zones and in post conflict national and international reconciliations. Her book, Transnational Feminist Perspectives on Terror in Literature and Culture, draws on postcolonial literature, photography, films, music, interdisciplinary arts, media/new media, and activism to explore how these socio-cultural texts confront the march of imperialism in the name of women’s and queer liberation.

ALL ARE WELCOME.
