Event description
An interdisciplinary roundtable discussion on the theme of 'Queer New York', focussing on the period from the 1960s to the present.

About this Event

This exciting interdisciplinary roundtable discussion explores 'Queer New York', from the perspectives of four writers whose work has collectively addressed the HIV-AIDS pandemic, gentrification and memory, the Black gay cultural renaissance, ruins, cruising and the waterfront, and queer theatre/performance, art, and seriousness. Our four panellists are:

Sarah Schulman (CSI CUNY), author of numerous works including The Gentrification of the Mind: Witness to a Lost Imagination (University of California Press, 2012) and People In Trouble (Dutton, 1990; Vintage, 2019);

Darius Bost (Utah), author of Evidence of Being: the Black Gay Cultural Renaissance (University of Chicago Press, 2019);

Fiona Anderson (Newcastle), author of Cruising the Dead River: David Wojnarowicz and New York's Ruined Waterfront (University of Chicago Press, 2019);

Gavin Butt (Northumbira), author of Between You and Me: Queer Disclosures in the New York Art World (Duke University Press, 2005).

The event is organised by the Centre for the Study of North America at the University of Birmingham, and will be chaired by Rona Cran and John Fagg.

All welcome! This is an online event. A link to the event will be sent to you when you register, along with information about how you can ask questions before/during the discussion.
