Event Details

Westminster Talks is proud to continue the new series with a talk by Professor Dibyesh Anand


Queering Nations, Decolonising States

Through my life and work, I have questioned dominant identities while recognising the value of identity politics. I have interrogated coloniality that continues to shape the contemporary postcolonial condition especially of stateless nations including Tibet and Kashmir. I have sought to practise education as a constant process of self-reflexivity. The lecture will adopt eclectic methods, multiple narratives and different sites of investigation to put forward a new way of progressive thinking and practising that brings together the personal, the political and the international as embodied within a queer Self. 


Professor Dibyesh Anand, Head of the Department of Politics and International Relations

Professor Dibyesh Anand is the Head of the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Westminster in London. He is the author of monographs "Geopolitical Exotica: Tibet in Western Imagination” and “Hindu Nationalism in India and the Politics of Fear” and has published on varied topics including Tibet, China-India border dispute, Hindu nationalism and Islamophobia in India, identity politics in Tanzania, colonial occupation in Kashmir, and nationalism. He is currently working on colonial practices of postcolonial states, with special focus on India in Kashmir and China in Tibet. He is also the Chairperson for Westminster BME Staff Network.

Our distinguished 175-year history has meant we lead the way in many areas of research, particularly politics, media, art and design, architecture and biomedical sciences.

The Westminster Talks series features a diverse mix of speakers who are proud to have a shared history and an exciting future with us. The series aims to connect our audiences – students, alumni, staff, supporters and friends, offering a chance to find out about important research and practice underway at Westminster and the difference the work of our alumni, staff and honorary members have made in their fields.

Many of our speakers come from the University’s global community of over 170,000 alumni spread across 180 countries.
