Paola Bacchetta

Paola Bacchetta is Professor and Vice Chair of Pedagogy in the Department of Gender and Women's Studies at University of California, Berkeley. Bacchetta's theoretical research interests are in: transnational feminist and queer theory, decolonial and postcolonial theory, queer of colour theory, multiplicities (intersectionality, assemblages, articulational theorisations, co-formations and co-productions), social and critical theory, and theories of spatialities.

She has published on thematics such as: political and religious conflict; right-wing movements; liberation-oriented movements, insurgencies, and artistic expressions by feminist and queer of colour, decolonial and postcolonial subjects and movements; and co-motion (alliances, coalitions, convergences, solidarities). Her methods of specialisation are: analysis of discourse, sign-materialities, practices, events, co-formations and co-productions of power, subject formations and becomings; and ethnography and participant-observation. Her geographical areas of concentration are France, India, the United States, and more recently Italy.

Bacchetta is the author and contributing co-editor of numerous articles and book-length works including "Femminismi Queer Postcoloniali: critiche transnazionali all'omofobia, all'islamofobia e all'omonazionalismo", Queer Postcolonial Feminisms: Transnational Critiques of Homophobia, Islamophobia and Homonationalism, contributing co-editor with Laura Fantone, Ombre Corte, Verona, 2015; Gender in the Hindu Nation: RSS Women as Ideologues, Women Ink, India, 2004. Her next book on feminist and queer alliances in contexts of coloniality, capitalism, racism, and homonationalism, entitled Co-Motion, will be published by Duke University Press.
