On 15 November Ana Dragojlovic (University of Melbourne) will give a Doing Gender Lecture on Politics of Queer Affect: Intentionality, Mediation, Intervention in Indisch Memory Work at Utrecht University.
The Netherlands Research School of Gender Studies in cooperation with her partners organises the nineteenth round of the DOING GENDER Lecture Series. These lectures stress the importance of doing gender work combined with an active involvement in the practice of gender theory and research. The concept of DOING GENDER supports a hands-on approach to gender issues in the sense of social and political engagement with the new forms of gender inequalities that are taking shape in the world today. The lecture series wants to give space to the new generations of gender theorists and practitioners and to perspectives that innovate the field and do gender in new ways. Key is the notion of doing gender: what is the state of the art definition of gender? How do contemporary scholars and activists utilise this definition?
