1. Afiya Zia in Conversation with Gayatri C. Spivak
    Moderated by Sadia Abbas

    February 25, 2013
    The Graduate Center, CUNY

    Under the canvas of the “War on Terror”, the postcolonial themes of violent and hotly contested religio-nationalism have been revisited in Pakistan over the last decade. These have had direct and specific implications for women and minorities. This discussion by Afiya Shehrbano Zia traces the backlash against the liberal and/or secular women’s movement as betrayers of the Muslim (male) cause. It will also discuss the misguided prescription of those academic and developmental projects that advocate the instrumentalisation of Islam as an appropriate and ‘authentic’ approach in Muslim contexts.

  2. The Center for Place, Culture and Politics and Revolutionizing American Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center
    Moon-Ho Jung
    Subversive Histories: Race, National Security, and Empire Across the Pacific

    Moon-Ho Jung traces the historical origins of the national security state – the heart and soul of the U.S. empire – to a series of U.S. “foreign” and “domestic” policies targeting Asians on both sides of the Pacific. By exploring how Asians came to be racialized and radicalized subjects of the U.S. empire before World War II, he will seek to reframe notions of movements across the Pacific.
