Intersectional Hindu Studies: Feminist and Critical Race Approaches to Research and Teaching Seminar
Theme: Intersectional Hindu Studies: Feminist and Critical Race Approaches to Research and Teaching Seminar
Shana Sippy, Centre College/Carleton College, Presiding
Monday - 9:00 AM-11:30 AM
Hilton Bayfront-Cobalt 501A (Fifth Level)

This seminar uses the framework of feminist critical race theory to explore our experiences as researchers, teachers, and colleagues of colour in Hindu Studies. This is a closed session. The invited participants, a diverse group of scholars from different regions, religious backgrounds, serving at a range of institutions and at distinct stages in our careers, ask how our race and gender differences, histories of migration, and community connections shape us as researchers and teachers. What does it mean to talk critically about Hinduism, race, and racism in the neo-liberal university, when research has shown that the labour of racialized scholars, teachers, and administrators across the disciplines is frequently dismissed and devalued? This seminar is an attempt to create a space in which racialized scholars can discuss our experiences as both scholars and subjects, and reimagine the field with meaningful attention to a politics of location.
