Through an intersectional, embodied (psycho-spatial and synaesthetic), and processual theoretical matrix, my thesis unpacks the complex mechanisms underpinning the visual identification of subjects and artworks as "Desi" - the Hindi word meaning "from my country" - within the geographical and conceptual space that roughly includes the US, UK, and the South Asian subcontinent. To add further traction to my investigation, I yoke "queer" to Desi. The latter as two overlapping, and at other times competing, sets of visual identifications, serve to bring to the fore, rather than subsume, the complexities of the broader spectrum of intersecting visual identifications connected to both.
