Lecture - Queer Politics in the Global South
How does history matter to queer politics in the Global South? In this talk, the post-colonial theorist Rahul Rao will discuss the question in relation to queer politics in Uganda, India, and Britain - three locations yoked together by the experience of British imperialism and its afterlives.
Lecture #1 in the Critical Globality lecture series.

Critical Globality is a new lecture series at Roskilde University. At a time when global questions radically increase in importance, we need to ask questions about how ‘the global’ can best be understood. With three invited speakers per semester, Critical Globality will engage international scholars in a conversation about historical and contemporary iterations of global connections, networks, economies and politics.
