On the Margins of Society: The Hijra Community

10:28, Fri 1 Apr 2016

Recorded on 14 March 2016.
Speakers: Samar Islam, Adnan Hossain, Sandeep Bakshi.
In this seminar we discuss the Hijra community, a transgender community in South Asia almost entirely excluded from discussions of gender and identity within Eurocentric curriculums. The seminar features interviews and oral testimonies, as well as a discussion of the impacts of colonialism on sexuality, identity and rights of the Hijra community in the Indian subcontinent.
