Event description
An inclusive forum for young academics to discuss issues pertains to 'queer' and de/coloniality in post-socialist states

About this event

Both ‘queer’ and decolonial may promise to open radical potentialities that challenge traditional binary logics of gender, sexuality, race and ‘civilisational status’. Seeking to reverse and/or transcend exclusionary distinctions between ‘subject’ and ‘object’, these terms can challenge a range of oppressive intersectional norms – sexuality, coloniality, religion and beyond. Together, they may also critique ‘sexuality’ and ‘nation’ as primary markers of identity. At the same time, paradoxically, both can become subsumed into the very binary logics they seek to subvert, whether identity politics or nationalism(s). What and how do ‘queer; and decolonial together make meaning in post-socialist contexts? And, what are the practices that shape them? As Maria Lugones famously stated, “I will not think what I will not practice”. In this space, we want to showcase a range of interventions that foreground these terms’ critical edge as radical tools for examining and challenging that which is deemed normal, in contexts that emerged from, are haunted by and/or remain stuck under russian colonisation.

This event will be a roundtable, with five talks (45 minutes). Each session will consist of one paper or film screenings (20-30 mins) and a discussion session.

Audiences are invited to attend the whole day in the spirit of inclusivity, empathetic listening and community building.
