THE QUEER AND THE EERIE
Perhaps to question the human-male-centric view of the world and to imagine a more livable future requires an examination of liminal concepts such as the queer and the eerie. This conversation will discuss life and death matterings, the category of thingness, animacy and animation of the non-human, and dehumanization and death of the human through the politics of queerness and the eerie, race, sexuality, and gender.
Speakers include Mel Y. Chen, Associate Professor of Gender & Women’s Studies at U.C. Berkeley and Director of the Center for the Study of Sexual Culture; P. Staff, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Diego Marcon, and Precious Okoyomon, participating artists at the 59th International Art Exhibition.
Conversation moderated by Mel Y. Chen.
