Food for Thought Faculty Q&A with Prof. Claire Pamment

Originally aired on April 28, 2021
Presented by Prof. Claire Pamment

Performed by socially marginalized gender variant hijra and khwaja sira communities in South Asia, the badhai repertoire includes songs, dances, prayers and comic repartee that customarily commemorate births, weddings, and other celebratory heteronormative occasions. Professor Pamment considers badhai’s negotiations across restrictive social scripts, taking place within the changing landscape of transnational LGBTQIA+ movements and religious nationalism.
