Kathryn Medien Visiting Scholar

Intimate Occupation: Economies of Love in the Israeli Settler-Colony 

April 22, 2016 at 11:30 am in the East Duke Parlors

Here is a brief description of the talk:

Kathryn Medien is a second year PhD student in the Department of Sociology and Centre for the Study for Women and Gender at the University of Warwick, UK. She is a visiting scholar in Duke’s Women’s Studies Program for 2016, funded by a dissertation fellowship from the UK Economic and Social Research Council. Prior to starting her PhD, she completed an MSc in Gender Studies at the London School of Economics. Her research interests include sexuality, race and processes of racialization, colonization, Islamophobia, histories of Islam in Europe, biopolitics, and studies of globalization, modernity and imperialism. Kathryn’s PhD research explores how technologies of race and sexuality are central to Israel’s colonial project, and examines how they are applied to manage populations and individuals, creating registers of life and death. In examining how sexuality is deployed as a technology of Israeli colonial power, her thesis extends and challenges feminist and queer debate on sexual violence, reproduction, and normative sexualities, paying attention to how these are co-produced through national and global relations of coloniality. During her PhD she has taught undergraduate and masters courses at the University of Warwick and Cambridge University on race and modernity, bioscience and bodies, biopolitics, death and colonialism, and feminist postcolonial theory. In addition to writing her dissertation while at Duke, Kathryn will give a lecture on her work on April 22, 2016 at 11:30 am in the East Duke Parlor and participated in Frances Hasso’s graduate seminar, Cartographies of Middle East Gender and Sexuality Studies.
