Anjali Arondekar is an associate professor of Feminist Studies and Literature, University of California, Santa Cruz. Her research engages the poetics and politics of sexuality, geopolitics and historiography. Her first book, For the Record: On Sexuality and the Colonial Archive in India (Duke University Press, 2009), won the 2010 Alan Bray Memorial Book Award for best book in lesbian, gay, or queer studies in literature and cultural studies from the GL/Q Caucus of the Modern Language Association. Her current book project, Lyrical Summonings: Sexuality, Historiography, South Asia, grows out of her interest in the figurations of sexuality, ethics and collectivity in colonial British and Portuguese India.

Anjali Arondekar’s visit is sponsored by the UO Department of Comparative Literature and cosponsored by the Departments of Women’s and Gender Studies, Ethnic Studies, and English and the UO Center for the Study of Women in Society.
