253. Postqueer? Postrace? The Political Stakes of Queer

Sunday, 4 January, 10:15–11:30 a.m., Liberty C, Sheraton

Program arranged by the GL/Q Caucus for the Modern Languages

Presiding: Francesca Therese Royster, DePaul Univ.

Speakers: Sharon Patricia Holland, Duke Univ.; Ricardo L. Ortiz, Georgetown Univ.; Hiram Perez, Vassar Coll.; Jasbir Puar, Rutgers Univ., New Brunswick

Session Description:

In this so-called postrace era, we engage recent controversies around the future of queer theory through the lenses of race, nation, class, and other identities. How might alternative and competing traditions of queer theory, including queer-of-color critiques and reengagements of queer theory, highlight the continued work that "queer" has to do?


Subject:

  • General Literature – Literary Criticism and Theory
