April 11 :: South Asian American Masculinities & Popular Culture in the Age of Trump



south asian am mascSouth Asian American Masculinities & Popular Culture in the Age of Trump

a roundtable featuring D’LoRajiv Menon, & Imran Siddiquee

April 11, Wednesday
6 to 8 pm

D’Lo, actor, writer, comedian

Rajiv Menon, Visiting Scholar, Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality, New York University

Imran Siddiquee, filmmaker, speaker, writer, activist

The last several years have seen a marked growth of visibility of South Asian American men in U.S. popular culture (comedians Aziz Ansari, Kumail Nanjiani, Hari Kondabolu, and Hasan Minhaj come to mind, as does the British-Pakistani actor Riz Ahmed’s character in HBO’s The Night Of).  In a moment when our public discourse is defined by explicit racism and misogyny, South Asian American men find themselves at the crossroads of marginality and visibility, vulnerability and privilege. How have artists, writers, activists, and academics responded to this moment of upheaval surrounding brown masculinity?
