Conversations on South Asia with Shenila Khoja-Moolji



How do politics and emotion intersect? How might our understandings of sovereignty change if we account for feelings and emotions? How is gender mobilized in assertions of sovereignty? 

Making the Pakistani state and Pakistan-based Taliban her objects of study, Shenila Khoja-Moolji (Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, Bowdoin College) contemplates these questions by paying particular attention to state and non-state cultural productions that shape national publics.
