Although the ascendancy of Charles II on the English throne in 1660 was a restoration of Stuart hegemony, thereby giving the latter half of the seventeenth century its name, in reality the age heralded a new mode of living quite different from the one that existed in the pre-Civil War era. The culture and social mores that Charles II had imbibed during his exile at France were incorporated into English lifestyle with his coronation. The sudden release from Puritan stringency that had characterised life under Cromwell resulted in a general relaxation of morality that affected the dynamics of love, marriage, and human conduct.

The Southwestern Region of Sigma Tau Delta contains a multitude of diverse narratives. During the 2020 Symposium, we want to encourage members to expand their own narratives by listening to and discussing the narratives of others. Our goal is to create a vibrant, unified identity for our Region built upon an appreciation and understanding of the diversity of narratives within it.

In Cruising Utopia, José Esteban Muñoz argues that “Queerness is essentially about the rejection of a here and now and an insistence on potentiality or concrete possibility for another world.” For Muñoz, the future becomes the domain of the queer, the time and place where queerness can thrive. However, scholars often overlook the “now” in queer theory, an urgent, revolutionary now akin to what Walter Benjamin calls the “Jetztzeit.”
