Vijaya Chikermane

Vijaya is a relentless reader, clever co-conspirator in the downfall of empire, and feminist killjoy since before she can remember. She studied Social Policy and Planning but learnt far more from Audre Lorde, Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o, Edward Said, Sara Ahmed, Bama, Mahmoud Darwish, James Baldwin, Alice Walker and more. She is also mama to a little human whom she indoctrinates to practice audacious rebellion.
