Be a Man!: The Construction of Masculinity in South Asia
Meet Harjant Gill, who will be in attendance for his films Mardistan and Sent Away Boys. Gill is an assistant professor of anthropology at Towson University and an award-winning filmmaker. His work examines the intersections of masculinity, modernity, transnational migration, and popular culture in India. The discussion will be moderated by Seema Bahl, Professor of Sociology at Bellevue College. Prof. Bahl grew up in the Pacific Northwest, but made many trips to India as a child to visit family, and connects strongly to issues of the South Asian diaspora. She teaches and has specific interests in the areas of gender, race, disability, and transnational migration.
