292. Queer Theory in a Postcolonial World

Friday, 4 January, 12:00 noon–1:15 p.m., 306, Hynes

Program arranged by the Division on Postcolonial Studies in Literature and Culture

Presiding: John Charles Hawley, Santa Clara Univ.

Session Description:

First, postcolonial queer social formations, legal struggles, and cultural histories are often relegated to the purview of area studies. What recent research trends complicate these parameters? Second, ideas of futurity from the postcolonies that focus on rights, identities, and so on in queer studies become more exemplars of progress than avatars of multiple temporalities. Can this change?
