Peace and Gender - Governing Gender and Sexuality in Colonial India: The Hijra

View descriptionShare

The podcast Peace and Gender is back for another semester. In this week's episode we are joined by Historian of gender, sexuality and empire, Jessica Hinchy, who will be talking about her book Governing Gender and Sexuality in Colonial India: The Hijra, C. 1850-1900. Jessica takes us on a journey in discovering the stories behind these eunuch and transgender people who played a significant role in their communities and we look at how they went from surviving complete eradication to speaking into the global transgender debates today. 

Produced and researched by: Andrea Thiis-Evensen and David Bonaddio
