Guest lecture:
Queer Literary Constructions of Online and Offline engagement in Sri
Lanka: Technology, Citizenship, and Space in The One Who Loves You So // Dr Shermal Wijewardene

 

Dr Shermal Wijewardene is a Senior Lecturer and Head of the Department of English at the University of Colombo (Sri Lanka). Her talk, part of Prof. Greta Olson's lecture entitled "From Protofeminism to Queer*, Trans* and Beyond," will be about THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU SO, a play that won the Gratiaen
Prize for Sri Lankan Writing in English in 2018.
Dr Wijewardene highly encourages listeners to read the play in advance, and to pay particular attention to its references to information and communication technologies and social media, as well as to all references to physical space.
