Strand Campus, London
“Queer@King’s is excited to welcome Madhavi Menon (Ashoka University) and a panel of colleagues from King’s and beyond to discuss how Madhavi Menon’s most recent book, Infinite Variety: A History of Desire in India (Speaking Tiger, 2018) puts into conversation major ideas of queer theory with the history of ideas in India.
Madhavi Menon is Professor of English and Director of the Centre for Studies in Sexuality and Gender at Ashoka University, India. Her work at the intersection of identity, desire, politics, and literature has given important impulses to various fields of queer studies, notably through her books Unhistorical Shakespeare: Queer Theory in Shakespearean Literature and Film (Palgrave, 2008) and Indifference to Difference: On Queer Universalism (Minnesota, 2015).”
