Troubling Queerness: New Directions in Queer of Color Critique

updated: 
Sunday, January 17, 2016 - 2:31pm
Northwestern University QPGSA

Queer studies is at a crossroads. The Supreme Court's decision on marriage equality, in conjunction with unparalleled advances in political inclusion, and widespread visibility for queer and transgender people have greatly influenced the public sphere. At the same time, recent theoretical turns away from anti-normativity as a guiding principle have called into question the utility of the appellation 'queer.' Tensions between the extreme levels of violence and poverty for people at the margins of "queerness," particularly trans people of color, and this widespread visibility and political inclusion, raise important questions for queer studies today.
