South Asian Diasporic Culture

April 14, 2016 - 4 p.m. - Multicultural Center

Vanita Reddy will give a talk based on her book Fashioning Diaspora: Beauty, Femininity and South Asian American Culture (Temple University Press, 2016) in the Alonso Family Room. The presentation will highlight how diasporic subjects’ encounters with and material uses of Indian beauty and fashion produce embodiments and social connections that put pressure on neoliberal practices of national and transnational belonging.
