Unpacking the term ‘South Asia,’ this talk candidly explores links between nationalism, state, identity, and gender and their significance in understanding feminist politics and its impacts on structures of queer inclusivity in the region. Examining cyberspaces ranging from Pakistani feminist blogs to queer art communities in India, it seeks to locate the feminist, intersectional unfoldings in the political economy of everyday life.
