In Archive of Tongues, Moon Charania explores feminine dispossession and the brown diaspora through a reflection on the life of her mother. Drawing on her mother’s memories and stories of migration, violence, sexuality, queerness, domesticity, and the intimate economies of everyday life, Charania conceptualizes her mother’s tongue as an object of theory and an archive of brown intimate life.

Charania is also author of Will the Real Pakistani Woman Please Stand Up?: Empire, Visual Culture and the Brown Female Body. Dr. Moon Charania is Associate Professor of International Studies and Comparative Women’s Studies at Spelman College.

All are welcome.

Following Dr. Charania’s lecture, she will join Dr. Kijua Sanders-McMurtry, Vice President for Equity and Inclusion, in a moderated Q & A.
