Workshop on Rethinking Gender, Sexuality and Marriage in Development @ Sambhaavnaa Institute, Himachal Pradesh [Sept 11-15]: Registrations Open


Samvada in collaboration with Sambhaavnaa is offering a 5-day workshop, breaking down, exploring and re-thinking concepts of gender and sexuality in the context of development. The workshop will offer a space for participants to reflect on their own understanding and experiences of gender, sexuality, relationships, and marriage and link them to the development discourse. Using a methodology that works through self-reflection, critical social perspectives, and dialogue, the workshop aims to:

  • Break down and explore the concepts and meanings of gender, sexuality, relationships, and marriage in our own lives.
  • Critically examine the ways in which gender, sexuality, relationships, and marriage are placed within the development discourse.
  • Examine the ways in which gender and sexuality (have) become markers of development.
  • Explore the links that exist between our personal experiences of gender, sexuality, relationships, and marriage and the larger development discourse.
