Jindal Global University is hosting Gender Matters?, a series of events over the course of 6 weeks which will interrogate the ways in which gender becomes an organizing principle in our lives, how it manifests as both a space of repression, as well as liberation, how it intersects with and informs other identities that we carry with us.
The first edition of Gender Matters?, taking its lead from the Supreme Court's recent landmark Right to Privacy judgment, will be focusing on the notion of Privacy as it intersects with sexuality and sexual autonomy. Through a series of talks, panel discussions and cultural events, this thematic focus on privacy will run alongside events that attempt to interrogate gender at multiple registers.
