Dr Dhiren Borisa

Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi, India

Dr Borisa was the first person to complete a PhD at an Indian University surrounding the theme of ‘geographies of sexualities’. His research shall continue to explore lived experiences of queer men by using analytical approaches to mapping ethnographic patterns to inform concepts of freedom, desire and alienation. Drawing on geography, urban studies, communication, performance and anthropology to critically engage with issues surrounding gender and sexuality, Dr Borisa shall explore and explain the virtual and real spaces inhabited and utilised by queer Delhi communities both within and beyond India. Dr Borisa is hosted by Professor Gavin Brown.
