About this item

A queer woman of color, a woman of Pakistani descent writing and living in the US, and a feminist researcher and postmodern critic, Charania explores the relationship between the gendered nationalist subject and visual culture. She covers vision as violence; paranoid archives: Pakistan in the field of visuality, war, and empire; ******, fantasy, and freedom: brown women's bodies as subject of/to human rights; stop looking straight: Benazir Bhutto and the hetero-erotics of democracy; pleasure, subversion, and insubordination in female political subjectivity in Pakistan.
