Dr. Anurima Banerji takes a historical look at colonial legal discourse in 19th-century India and analyzes how female dancers, transgender performers, and gay men became symbols of a “queer India” for the British imperial regime. Dr. Banerji argues that these bodies collectively became a metaphor and metonym for a national body politic; the laws she examines expose how the idea of abnormal movement was central to the formation of the “queer" politics of the Raj.
