QM08@MSP, Queer Motions: 1st Bi-Annual Twin Cities Conference on Global/Local Sexualities, 4/5/08

Where are queer studies and queer politics going in the twenty-first century? This conference brings together scholars from around the world to address the complications, contradictions, and crossings that this question raises. QM08@MSP will focus on flows and movements across geographic borders, asking what is at stake in working through a transnational queer framework that blurs distinctions between nation and diaspora, indigenous and mobile, ocean and continent, Global South and Global North. At the same time, conversations will foreground slippages and motion across conceptual borders, considering multiple, culturally specific sexual formations that push distinctions between identities and praxes, pre- and post-modern genders, racialization and sexualization.

Panelists include: Charlotte Albrecht, Anguksuar (Richard LaFortune), Hector Carrillo, Kandace Creel, Jigna Desai, Kale Fajardo, Cindy Garcia, Dan Taulapapa McMullin, Scott Morgensen, Juliana Pegues, Omise’ke Natasha Tinsley, David Valentine, and Gloria Wekker. This event was organized by the Global Sexualities research collaborative.
