What Happened to brLesbian and Gay Studies?

What Happened to
Lesbian and Gay Studies?


Online Symposium, 17-18 Jun 2021

Does anyone do ‘lesbian and gay studies’? The formulation likely sounds quaint when gender and sexuality studies now aims its sights at so much more than what these identities designate. Just as feminist, queer and trans theory hotly debated the political and philosophical shortcomings of 'identity' in the 1980s and 90s, the 2000s and 2010s have given us the frameworks of homonormativity, homonationalism and queer liberalism to articulate how lesbian and gay identities in particular can become acute vectors of a racist modern governmentality. 

Organized by Ben Nichols

From Hoe to Heaux
: Illicit Eroticism and the Black Erotic Imagination

Online Lecture, 23 Jun 2021, 19:30

The talk considers the politics of Black women engaging in forms of hustling, hypersexuality, and sex work. Centring the question of how Black women interrogate and rework damaging archetypes like the ‘Hoe’, this talk theorizes from below, focusing on multiply marginalized Black cis and femme women involved in stigmatized and criminalized forms of erotic engagement, relation, and survival.
