Sridevi Nair. Faculty Lunch and Lecture Series at the Portland Center for Public Humanities

Sridevi Nair is Assistant Professor in the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at PSU. She has a joint Ph.D. in English and Women’s Studies from the University of Michigan. Her research engages representations of gender and sexuality in the context of globalization, with a particular focus on South Asia, and its diaspora. Her current work includes two separate projects: one, an article-length study of liberal white masculinity; and two, a proposed manuscript on South Asian elderly and globalization. In January 2012, she presented her work in progress (Aging Globalization: Older Women and Sexuality in Bollywood films of the 1990s-present) as part of the Faculty Lunch and Lecture Series at the Portland Center for Public Humanities.
