Akanksha Mehta

Akanksha Mehta is the co-director of the Centre for Feminist Research and currently covenes the module Race, Empire and Nation. Akanksha's research interests lie in the intersections of gender, sexuality, race and 'everyday' politics and violence. I am interested in the affective and material structures, economies, and contours of 'everyday' violence and the questions these raise for thinking about subjectivity, space, agency, political mobilisations, intimacy, visual politics, regimes of gender, sexuality, and race, and the politics of women's violence.
