CFP: Queerness and Violence

Queer Studies Graduate Symposium
University of California, Davis
June 2, 2007

The war on terror has become the monolithic face of violence in dominant
cultural discourse at the same time that hate crime legislation has been
positioned as a marker of progress for the gay rights movement. Both of
these moves create an obsession with safety while simultaneously ignoring
other violences, such as police violence, domestic violence, the prison
industrial complex, and violences produced by medical establishments,
that continuously take and harm lives.

Twilight of Queerness:
from Binaries to Connectivity

Most current LGBT political activism focuses on the
marriage/anti-marriage debate, and accordingly, scholarship debate
disputes relational/anti-relational ideologies. Both grossly miss a
larger political and intellectual potential for queer studies and that
the definition of discreet identity binaries is, itself, destructive
to a truly radical and progressive discourse.
