About the Event:
Please join us for the Fifth Annual YaleWomen social, which we are holding this year in conjunction with the Yale International Alliance. The evening will begin with a talk by Inderpal on 'Neoliberalism and Women’s Movements in the New Century'. This event will lead up to the YIA hosted Conference on Global Citizenship in Rome on 13-14 March -- more information on the Rome conference will be shared at the event. Inderpal will share her recent research and then open up the discussion to the audience. As always, the atmosphere is relaxed, informal and intimate. This is a chance to also catch up with fellow Yalies after the talk. All yale is and guests are welcome. If anyone has any new initiatives they’d like to share with the wider group there will be an opportunity at the beginning of the talk to share it with others.

She is also Professor in the Ethnicity, Race and Migration Studies Program, the South Asian Studies Council, and affiliate faculty in the American Studies Program, in Anthropology and in Film and Media Studies. She is the author of Home and Harem: Nation, Gender, Empire and the Cultures of Travel (Duke University Press, 1996), Transnational America: Feminisms, Diasporas, Neoliberalisms (Duke University Press, 2005), and Saving the Security State: Exceptional Citizens in Twenty-First century America (Duke University Press, 2017). With Caren Kaplan, she has written and edited Gender in a Transnational World: Introduction to Women’s Studies (Mc-Graw Hill 2001, 2005) and Scattered Hegemonies: Postmodernity and Transnational: Feminist Practices (University of Minnesota Press, 1994). With Victoria Bernal, she has edited Theorizing NGO’s: States, Feminism and Neoliberalism (Duke University Press, 2014). Currently she is working on projects addressing the resurgence of patriarchal authoritarian governments globally, the rise of gendered violence, and feminist movements resisting such violence.
