Event description

Description

What is it to conceive ‘queer Asia’ as a field? Is it useful (or not) to organise around the terms ‘queer’ and ‘Asia’ (separately or conjoined)? How does this differ within varied practices and disciplines? What organisational capacity does it hold? Our Opening Panel invites our speakers to reflect on ideas of ‘Queer’, ‘Asia’, and ‘Queer Asia’ in their disciplines, areas of expertise, and/or practice. Coming from academic, activist, and artistic backgrounds, panellists will reflect on their divergent expertise in thinking about these questions and discuss some of the significant queries we reflect upon in organising around the terms queer and Asia.
