Abstract: The frame of the “region” has been a productive site for unsettling embedded national framings in literary and historical analysis within and beyond South Asia. This talk draws attention to itineraries of the “the region” within feminist and anthropological approaches to the “global”. How does “region” configure and/or disrupt conceptions of the “global” in feminism? What are the itineraries of “region” in anthropologies of the “global”? Situating a discussion of the transnational trajectories of the “Kerala Model of Development” within such questions, this talk explores shifting frames of locality across the regional, national and the global.
