Mumbai

As part of its Period Positive: Improving Menstrual Health and Knowledge  in  India  project, Columbia Global Centers | Mumbai is organizing a workshop to strengthen research on menstruation in India. Studies on menstruation are largely centered on hygiene and infrastructure access interventions with limited attention to understanding it as a life-cycle process. Aimed at building a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to menstruation research, the workshop will engage with faculty and scholars from leading academic institutions in Mumbai as well as with Professors Inga Winkler and Chris Bobel, co-editors of the Handbook of Critical Menstruation Studies, a compendium that features a vast array of research perspectives from diverse global contexts.
