Queer mobiles and mobile queers: Intersections, vectors, and movements in India

Publikation: Beiträge in SammelwerkenAufsätze in SammelwerkenForschungbegutachtet


The economic and cultural neo-liberalization that India has embraced over the last two decades, fueled by its development dreams of becoming a technological capital and the radical infrastructure building to support the burgeoning Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industries, has been marked by two persistent questions: the question of technology and the question of sexuality. These are both discrete but also deeply intertwined questions because at the heart of both these are anxieties about modernity, identity, bodies, and regulation. The anxieties emerge from a series of paradoxes that have become characteristic of postcolonial societies in several parts of the world.
