Diaspora, Indigeneity, Queer Critique - A talk by Dr. Gayatri Gopinath

April 8, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Mānoa Campus, Burns 2118

Dr. Gayatri Gopinath is an Associate Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and Director of Asian/Pacific/American Studies at New York University. Her research area includes Queer Studies, Post-colonial Studies, and Feminist Theory. Her talk is an attempt to think through the relation between diaspora and indigeneity in relation to queer studies. She argues that queer diasporic aesthetic practices allow us to place in the same frame, different histories of dispossession and displacement, colonialism and racialization without rendering them equivalent.
