About the Author

SUPARNA BHASKARAN is an Anthropologist and Assistant Professor of Women's studies. She has essays published in Queering India (Routledge 2001) and Our Feet Walk in the Sky (Aunt Lute, 1993).


Made in India is a provocative and important contribution to queer diaspora and area studies. Working from the ever-globalizing present, Suparna Bhaskaran shows how Made in India is at once the result of commodity production in the liberal(ized) economy and of Indian nationalism's increasingly phantasmatic attempts to reinforce its sexual, racial and class boundaries in the postcolonial world.' - Kamala Visweswaran, Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Texas

'Compellingly Innovative. Highly readable. Suparna Bhaskaran has gifted a most skillfully imagined ethnography. She has taken the word queer through a transnational journey that is at once intimate and political, and, in so doing, she has fashioned a new and expansive vocabulary about the formation of sexual subjectivities in neocolonial India. This is indispensable reading for anyone interested in the radical transformation of what it means to be queer.' - M. Jacqui Alexander, author of forthcoming Pedagogies of Crossing
