The Global South Gender and Sexuality (GS2) Collective is excited to unveil the lineup for its 2023/2024 speaker series. 

Funded by an IRWG Incubator grant and the ADVANCE SUCCEED grant, the GS2 Collective was initiated to foster an interdisciplinary scholarship and engage discussions on the exploration of gender, sexuality, and racialization in the Global South.

The speaker series will host revered scholars, including Durba Mitra from Harvard University, Raevin Jimenez from the University of Michigan, Evren Savcı from Yale University, and Yun Zhou from the University of Michigan.

Durba Mitra will kick off the series on Friday, October 6, 2023, tackling "Third World Feminism and the Crisis of Authoritarianism," followed by Raevin Jimenez on November 20, 2023, exploring "Gendered Mutualism in Southeast Africa: Personhood and Society in Deep-time Historical Perspective."

Starting 2024, Evren Savcı will delve into "Queer in Translation: Sexual Politics under Neoliberal Islam" on January 26. The series will conclude with Yun Zhou's discussion on "Riding the Leviathan: Gender, Fertility, and Selfhood in Autocratic China" on March 29.

Each lecture will take place from 12 pm to 1:30 pm at 2239 Lane Hall, hosted by the Department of Women’s & Gender Studies. This series promises to open crucial conversations around important global issues and introduce new perspectives in the field.
