Berkman Luncheon Series
Does Size Matter? A Tale of Performing Welfare, Producing Bodies and Faking Identity
Malavika Jayaram, Berkman Fellow
By offering a perspective that is somewhat different from the traditional western focus of privacy, Malavika Jayaram hopes to generate a more inclusive discourse about what it means to be autonomous and empowered in the face of paternalistic development projects. She will highlight, in particular, the varied ways in which the project is already being subverted and re-purposed, in ways that are humorous and poignant.
