Made in India examines seemingly disparate and high profile events in postcolonial India that captured national and transnational/diasporic interest since the 1990s: The emergence of the Indian homosexual, the new trans/national heterosexual woman, lesbian suicides, marriage and kinship contracts in small towns around India and the simultaneous evolution of the modern homophobia and lesbian NGOs. These events demonstrate the material, political, and cultural contexts within which postcolonial subjects negotiate their lived experiences within moments of decolonization and recolonization.
In addition to work created by faculty of the Department of Africana, Gender, and Identity Studies, this collection includes work created under the auspices of the Department of Black World Studies and the Department of Women's and Gender Studies, which consolidated following the 2020-2021 academic year.
